Cruiser Wireless Wind (Apparent)


The Cruiser wireless wind is supplied with a wireless masthead transmitter, a base unit and a Cruiser 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 Cruiser Wind display or any other compatible NMEA display unit.

The Cruiser Wind display measures 132 x 98 x 29mm. It has an exceptionally large and clear display with 60 segments for full 360 degree direction indication.
