B&G has launched its latest range of wind sensors designed for cruising and club racing sailors.

The WS320 is a wireless version for yachts with masts up to 80ft. it is designed for high performance, improved aerodynamics and accuracy.

The unit has a rechargeable solar power management system to ensure data is available to instruments and autopilots, no matter the weather conditions.


The WS310 is the wired option and comes with the same improvements in accuracy and aerodynamics but allows for more traditional wired installations.

“As the most exposed sensor on a yacht, the wind sensor is critical for instruments and autopilot steering. Reliability of these sensors is key, so the WS310 and WS320 have undergone rigorous validation,” said Alan Davis, product line director, B&G. “We have conducted benchmarking tests against different sensors in more than 500 individual wind tunnel tests and conducted over 200,000 hours of field tests without failure.”

And he explained that opting for a wireless sensor does not mean users have to sacrifice accuracy as the wireless option delivers the same level of accuracy as the wired version, outputting wind at five times per second.
