OpenWind is an instrument designed to provide sailors with precised measurements of the wind direction and speed. The application uses an advanced algorithm to calculate the true wind speed and direction in any environmental condition (e.g.: boat drift, current).
The usual half sphered anemometer cups measures differently depending on the angle of heel. The design of the blades from the OpenWind anemometer can measure more precisely with angle variation. In adition to the integrated 9 axis sensor we also correct any small decimal variations. Making OpenWind the first windmeter with angle compensation in the market.
New design and technology for highly precised measurements.
The solar panel charges the battery and powers the device.
Ability to connect to various devices and platforms.
OpenWind comes with a railmount design to be attached in most of the common rails from sailboats. The aluminum support of the device can be adjusted 360 degrees on top of the railmount when screwing it. Another alternative is screwing the device directly on the mast or any other part of the boat.
OpenNMEA, a device that will allow you to connect OpenWind to your Charterplotter.
