Tactical Wind Mast Sensor (NMEA)
A high performance system that sends NMEA wind speed and direction data 10 times a second.
In demanding conditions, where high performance is essential, the Clipper Tactical wind mast sensor is the ideal choice. With ten updates every second it responds very quickly to the changes in wind speed and direction, which occur during tricky manoeuvres. The sensor is supplied complete with a mast mounting kit, 20 metres of light weight cable and all necessary electrical connectors to complete the installation. The output data is in the NMEA 0183 format and can be used to drive any compatible display that utilises the MWV sentence. Supplied as standard to Clipper, Target and Cruiser V2 wind systems.
NOTE – This 3 wire NMEA mast unit is not compatible with earlier 5 wire analogue Clipper, Target or Cruiser wind systems. The earlier analogue mast sensor is available on the spare parts page.
- Mast transmitter supplied with 20 metres of cable
- NMEA 0183 4800 Baud data sentence MWV – update rate = 10 per second
- Wind speed 0 to 99.9 Kts
- Wind direction 0 to 360 degrees
- Supply voltage nominal 12 Volts
- Wind sensor supply current 9mA
AIS Engine 3 upgrade processor
The AIS Engine 1 and 2 can be upgraded to AIS Engine 3 specification by replacing the processor. This is a straightforward procedure where the old device is simply unplugged from its socket and replaced by the new device. AIS Engine 3 relays all AIS messages.
Liquified petroleum gas (LPG) is an invaluable source of energy on many sailing vessels. It should, however, be used with great care. In its gaseous form it is heavier than air and will always collect at the lowest level in a vessel. Any leak of gas, any spillage of liquid could sink to the bilge and, unable to escape, build up to explosive proportions.
The NASA Marine gas detector system warns if the level of LPG rises above 10% of the lowest explosive limit (LEL) giving adequate warning of the need to ventilate the area before a dangerous situation occurs. The system consists of a cabin mounted monitor and a remote sensor. The monitor gives visual and audible warning if gas levels at the sensor rise above 10% LEL and will warn of fault conditions such as damaged cables etc.
The splash proof sensor is supplied with a 5 metre cable and has a test button to check the system right through to the gas sense element. The sense element is user replaceable in the event of contamination. Supplied with power cable.
20W Semi Flexible SOLAR PANEL
At just 3.5mm thin our weather proof panels are tough enough to withstand being stepped on when wearing soft soled shoes
A solar panel can provide a near maintenance free solution to keeping batteries charged when unattended. An occasional wipe with a damp cloth is all that is necessary to ensure the panel continues to trickle energy into the battery. Keeping the battery topped up will improve its reliability and can extend its useful working life. Whilst solar panels give their maximum output in direct sunlight, even an overcast day can provide a useful level of charge.
The Nasa Marine 12 volt, semi flexible solar panel is robustly constructed on a fibre glass substrate and are protected by a scratch proof transparent Tedlar polymer. Only 3.5mm thick and lightweight, they have no metal outer components to make contact with the surface to which they are fitted. The efficient and stable polycrystalline cells are encapsulated between two tough outer layers so the whole panel is weatherproof and carries a limited one year warranty.
The panel can be gently flexed (in one dimension.) to follow a smooth curve, such as a coach roof, by up to 2.5cm per 100cm of panel length. Four, grommet finished, holes are provided for screw fixing. Alternatively panels can be glued into position using mastic. The panels do not contain glass and, when correctly mounted, can be stepped upon when wearing soft soled shoes.
A sealed junction box is fitted with 2.5m of output cable, a connector and fuse protected crocodile clips. Electrical connection is simple though the use of a solar regulator is recommended to prevent overcharge if the system is to be left unattended for long periods or the solar panel to battery ratio exceeds the minimum of 10W to 100Ah. An internal blocking diode prevents reverse current drain at night. The panel is protected with an inline 3 Amp fuse.
The 20W panel measures 510 x 360mm
A large display, mast mounted, multifunction repeater is now being produced at our factory.
