Clipper Wireless Wind (True)
The Clipper wireless wind is supplied with a wireless masthead transmitter, a base unit and a Clipper True Wind display unit. The wireless masthead transmitter is powered by an internal battery which is charged from ambient light using a small solar panel. A few dull days will not affect performance. When fully charged, it is capable of two thousand hours of full operation in total darkness. The masthead transmitter sends data wirelessly to the base unit, which is powered by the vessel’s 12 Volt supply, the base unit receives wind speed and direction data from the masthead transmitter and sends it to the display.
The Clipper True Wind display is in the industry standard 110mm square case. Exceptionally large and clear display with 60 segments for full 360 degree direction indication. The display shows apparent wind speed and direction and, when connected to a log or GPS, it can also show true wind speed and direction.
- Wireless wind speed and direction data to any compatible NMEA display
- Easy installation with mast in place – no wires to run down
- Simple masthead alignment through base unit
- Light mast unit weight – 190 grams
Clipper Depth System
Clipper Duet with Electromagnetic 3 Log transducer
The best selling combined Speed/Distance Log and Echo Sounder in standard 110mm square size. Suitable for open cockpit mounting.
The Clipper Duet is supplied complete with the solid state electromagnetic speed transducer (for installation on most types of GRP hulls) and in hull depth transducer. Supplied with the EML-3 electromagnetic transducer, the log measures the boat speed through the water with no moving parts. Robust and accurate, the sensor generates an alternating magnetic field below the boat and measures the resulting electric field produced by the boat moving through the water. With excellent linearity and a resolution of 0.1 Knot, over the range 0.2 to 40 Knots, the control box converts the sensor signal to a pulse output to connect to the Clipper Duet display.

Clipper Compass System
The Clipper Compass is a fully electronic compass with remote fluxgate sensor. The large clear display has 7 levels of illumination and gives True or magnetic heading. The sensor which is gimballed for plus/minus 30 degrees of pitch and roll, is mounted in a position where stray magnetic fields are at a minimum. An electronic auto calibration then cancels out small errors.
Steer to course function
When the steering function is selected a series of chevrons accumulate showing the magnitude and direction of the steering error. To stay on course simply turn the wheel in the direction of the chevrons until they are extinguished. The steering sensitivity can be preset by the user. An off course alarm provides a safety feature when not at the helm. If the heading deviates by more than a preset amount then the alarm will sound.

Clipper BM-1 Battery Monitor
The BM-1 battery monitor is designed to monitor performance of 12 volt lead acid battery systems, including AGM and GEL types with capacities of up to 600 Amp hours. It is supplied complete with a precision 100 AMP shunt and a prefabricated cable assembly to enable simple DIY installation. The unit continuously monitors voltage, current (charge or discharge), number of amp/hours (charge or discharge), the batteries state of charge and the time to charge or discharge. It also monitors the voltage of the engine start battery. This information leads to more efficient use of the battery, which can enhance battery life and reduce the risk of failure.
