Cost effective marine approved wind sensor
DEIF's ultrasonic WSS 550 wind sensor has no moving parts that could cause the wear-out problems typically associated with cup and vane type anemometers. This ensures consistent and reliable performance with no significant maintenance costs. Marine approved and with an IP66 enclosure and a built-in heater to prevent icing, the WSS 550 is a robust yet cost effective solution for marine wind measuring applications.
The WSS 550 has been specially designed to make retrofit installation quick and simple when replacing DEIF’s older WSS/WSS-L products. Easy installation and plug and play set up are also key factors when combining with DEIF’s XDi-N indicator which also comes with a comprehensive standard library of wind indicators to choose from. Using XDi-N indicators with the WSS 550 also allows integration with other navigation systems such as compass for true or geographical wind display and other systems such as VDR.
For an extended range or separately powered heating for use in harsh marine environments, consider the DEIF WSS 750.
