Wind Speed Indicator

Wind Speed Indicator & Wind Displays

The Gill digital wind speed indicator is a combined wind speed and direction display available in two formats - standard or marine. Wind speed information is displayed using two, 3 digit LED arrays to display current wind speed and maximum or minimum gust data; and a double ring of 36 LEDs indicate current and average wind direction.

Gill wind speed indicators have been designed to operate with the Gill WindObserver II and WindSonic wind sensors. The Wind Display receives data directly from the wind sensor in either Gill or NMEA mode without the need for additional interfaces. It provides the power supply for the wind sensor and can be “daisy chained” to a second wind display to transfer wind sensor information.

Depending upon the capacity and type of cable used, data transfer is possible up to a distance of 1000m.

User configurable, this wind speed indicator can display wind speed in various scales, mph, m/s, knots, km/h and Beaufort. The power supply can also be configured to meet specific customer requirements.

A standard wind display has 0˚-359˚ scale whereas the marine version, designed for use on board ships, shows 0˚-180˚ on both sides of the scale.
