A new range of high precision B&G wind sensors, designed for cruising and club racing sailors. An evolution of B&G’s previous sensors, developed through hours of iterative testing to provide the best solution for sailing wind sensors. The WS300 series meets the following design objectives:
Designed to provide highly accurate wind data in all conditions at all points of sail and heel. WS300 has been benchmarked against multiple different sensors in over 500 individual wind tunnel tests.
-Angle accuracy < 1 degree *
-Speed accuracy <0.2kt or 5% *
As the most exposed sensor on a yacht, the wind sensor, critical for instruments and autopilot steering, must meet an exceptionally high
standard. In addition to B&G’s standard testing WS310 and WS320 sensors have been subject to combined field tests of over 200,000 hours.
