Description




The UWSD10 provides NMEA 0183 output of wind speed, wind direction and air temperature using four ultrasonic sensors configured in a 3 dimensional array. The UWSD10 has no moving parts to wear out.

The UWSD10 calculates wind speed with a resolution of 0.01 knots and works from zero wind speed to 120 knots. Wind direction is output in degrees and air temperature in degrees C.

The UWSD10 draws only .040 amps and is provided with a 30M cable and two waterproof connectors.

The UWSD10L draws only .0045 amps and is provided with a 30M cable and two waterproof connectors.

Each UWSD10 wind sensor is individually calibrated in our wind tunnel every 1 degree from 0 to 359 degrees and the errors mapped and compensated to provide the best accuracy possible as shown here:
