Wireless technology makes installing the new wind sensor a breeze.

B&G has launched the WS300 series of wireless and wired wind sensors for cruising and club-racing sailors.

The WS320 wireless wind sensor is intended for boats with masts up to around 82 feet. It is easy to install, lightweight and performs the same as a wired unit, according to B&G said in a statement. It has a rechargeable solar power management system. The WS310 is the wired version.

“Both the wireless and wired units offer exceptional performance in terms of accuracy of wind angle and speed, and are also extremely reliable,” said Alan Davis, B&G’s product line director, in the statement. “As the most exposed sensor on a yacht, the wind sensor is critical for instruments and autopilot steering. … We have documented benchmarking tests against multiple different sensors in over 500 individual wind tunnel tests and conducted over 200,000 hours of field tests without failure.”

The WS320 eliminates the need to run wires through the mast on smaller boats, facilitating installation.
