wind vane, anemometer, NMEA data
The wind repeater VL-LCR is an display module for NMEA wind data which are delivered from anemometer. The wind data like "MWV ..." and "MWD ..." can be processed according to NMEA 0183. From the NMEA telegrams, the wind speed and direction can be determined. The speed is displayed in m/s, knots and beaufort., each in a 7-segment display. The direction of the wind is indicated by an LED circuit (red) in a steps of 10°. A wind direction area on the same LED circle (green) indicates an area in which the wind direction in an adjustable time has been varied. The user interface is designed so that the entire display can be dimmed and the selection of the display format of the wind data (true, rel and tts) can be done easily.
