The model 220WXH is Airmar’s choice for commercial-fishing, weather-monitoring applications in ice-prone areas. Designed with a highly effective, thermostatically controlled, heating system, it operates effectively in cold climates. Feature rich in a durable, rugged, small-footprint housing that is IPX6 rated, the 220WXH calculates the theoretical wind speed and direction based upon the apparent wind, speed of the vessel, and vessel heading.
The 220WXH has an internal 10 Hz GPS and three-axis electronic compass. These sensors gives heading, position, speed-over-ground, and course-over-ground functionality that is required for theoretical wind-data processing and mobile applications. A 3D compass with dynamic stabilization provided by the three-axis rate gyro enhances the rate-of-turn data.
