The model 220WX is Airmar’s solution for commercial-fishing weather-monitoring applications. Feature rich in a durable, rugged, small footprint that is IPX6 rated, the 220WX calculates the theoretical wind speed and direction based upon the apparent wind, speed of the vessel, and vessel heading.

The 220WX has an internal 10 Hz GPS and three-axis electronic compass. These sensors give heading, position, speed-over-ground, and course-over-ground functionality that is required for theoretical wind-data processing and mobile applications. A 3D compass with dynamic stabilization provided by the three-axis rate gyro also enhances the rate-of-turn data.
