The Walker 2080 MK2 uses a Solid State Ultrasonic Wind Speed &Vane Direction Sensor, the P292. This gives high accuracy in a robustcompact package… with no moving parts to wear out!
The Sensor connects directly to a standard Walker DIN 144 windspeed & direction indicator, the P1249, which gives digital displays ofrelative wind speed & direction. Wind direction is also displayed ona simulated analogue display by use of OLED technology.
True wind systems are available by using this sensor with the WalkerP1066 True Wind Interface Unit.
The sensor converts wind speed and direction into serial digitaldata. Data is displayed by the P1249 Indicator in digital format andalso in analogue for wind direction. The instrument interfaces inNMEA 0183/RS422 to other ship systems. Sentence – MWV.
