    Package Includes:

    • WS320 Wireless wind sensor
    • WS320 Wireless interface (Bluetooth)
    • Rechargeable battery

    The WS320 wireless wind sensor is a precision wireless wind sensor from B&G, designed for cruising and club racing sailors. Get exceptional data accuracy and improved aerodynamics in an easy-to-install sensor pack without the need for a wired installation.

    Providing accurate, reliable wind data in all conditions at all points of sail and heel, the WS320 has been benchmarked against multiple different sensors in more than 500 individual wind tunnel tests.

    Ideal for smaller boats, this lightweight sensor pack offers the same accuracy for reporting wind angle and speed as the wired version, while outputting wind at a super smooth 5 times every second.

    As the most exposed sensor on a boat, the wind sensor – critical for instruments and autopilot steering – must meet exceptionally high standards of performance and durability. In addition to B&G's extreme testing program, the WS320 sensors have been subject to combined field tests of more than 200,000 hours.
