Even we have been surprised by the capabilities of the new innovations, in the final field testing that we have done. Wind direction with precision down to a degree or two(!). The wind cups display wind speed in the lightest puff of air, less than 1 knot. Extra large solar panels so that even on cloudy days you are generating excess power to keep the powerful battery topped up.
The innovative new wind cup blades are designed to maintain wind speed accuracy even when you are sailing along heeled over. With standard cup, ultrasonic and propeller anemometers, when the boat heels over, the wind increasingly hits them from underneath. But this new blade design sets a new standard (patent pending). The blades have a profile to the wind like wind cups when the boat is upright, but like a propeller when the boat is heeled over.
This is the first masthead anemometer that can be installed without having to climb or lower the mast. If you have an extra spinnaker or pennant halyard, the new Wind Instrument comes with a loop on the Mounting Rod that allows you to easily raise it from deck level. Or, the SailTimer Track Slider™ is an accessory that lets you raise the Wind Instrument up the mainsail track, until you get a chance to mount it on the masthead.
The pre-orders are expected to be shipping through April. Don't worry about contacting us about timing; spring launches are coming up, so we are busily ensuring that the manufacturing is going as quickly as possible. Packages will be shipping out based on the sequence in which orders were received.
If you want the new SailTimer Wind Instrument™ for spring, we have a limited number of units left in the current manufacturing run for shipping in late April. A premium anemometer without the usual marine electronics pricing. Check out the following page for full details.
