WS700 Series Wind Sensors

The WS700 series is the ultimate wind sensor for performance sailing, providing the most accurate wind angle and speed data. The new one-piece vane design gives superb aerodynamics and stability, as a result of over 200,000 hours of combined design and wind tunnel testing.

Higher altitude for clearer readings

The vertical spar minimises the effect of sail-plan disturbance on wind measurement ensuring the best performance with minimum calibration. This means reliable True Wind Direction to make precise race calls when needed and better steer-to-wind performance in all conditions when on autopilot.

Flexibility

Choose from 4 options of vertical high-modulus carbon spars from 0.8 to 1.8m** in standard or ocean specification. 

WS700 series follows the same physical mounting as previous models (VHMU) providing an easy upgrade path.

**Spar sizes are indicative

Wide compatibility

Connect directly to H5000 or WTP3 via a NMEA 0183 input or to NMEA 2000 via the wired interface (sold separately).

Straightforward installation

WS700 connects to your instrument system via a single mast cable, available in 4 different lengths from 25 to 80m.
