  1. Why doesn't Maretron offer a WSO100 with a built in GPS or compass?Why doesn't Maretron offer a WSO100 with a built in GPS or compass?
    The WSO100 is generally placed at the highest point on the vessel so that it is not obstructed from the wind. Unfortunately, the highest point on a vessel is often the worst possible placement for a G...

  2. Why is the WSO100 shaped the way it is?Why is the WSO100 shaped the way it is?
    The WSO100 was designed from the ground up to work in the marine environment. Unlike ultrasonic wind measurement devices originally designed for land based applications where the unit is always mounte...

  3. What information does the WSO100 provide?What information does the WSO100 provide?
    The WSO100 provides the following information; 1) apparent wind speed, 2) apparent wind direction, 3) atmospheric pressure, 4) air temperature, and 5) relative humidity.

  4. What is a WSO100?What is a WSO100?
    The WSO100 is an ultrasonic wind and weather station that measures apparent wind speed and direction, atmospheric pressure, humidity, and air temperature. Unlike other ultrasonic wind measur...

  5. What messages (or PGNs) does the WSO100 transmit?What messages (or PGNs) does the WSO100 transmit?
    The WSO100 transmits the following messages (or PGNs): PGN 130306 - Wind Data (Fields: 1-SID, 2-Wind Speed, 3-Wind Direction, 4-Wind Reference) PGN 130311 - Environmental Parameters ...

  6. What is apparent wind?What is apparent wind?
    Apparent wind is what the Maretron WSO100 measures and doesn't necessarily reflect what the wind is truly doing. For example, if the vessel was moving at exactly 5 knots and the wind was blowing in th...

  7. What is true wind?What is true wind?
    True wind is what the wind is truly doing and it can be computed from the measured apparent wind by subtracting the vessels speed. For example, if the vessel was moving at exactly 5 knots and the wind...

  8. What is ground wind?What is ground wind?
    Ground wind is the speed and direction of the wind referenced to a compass rose, which is different than apparent and true wind which are referenced to the bow of the boat. The apparent and true wind ...

  9. Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display apparent wind?Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display apparent wind?
    In order to display apparent wind, you only need a WSO100 and a display capable of showing apparent wind. Maretron's DSM150/250 dedicated NMEA 2000 displays or Maretron's N2KView PC software ...

  10. What is the difference between true wind referenced to ground speed and true wind referenced to water speed?What is the difference between true wind referenced to ground speed and true wind referenced to water speed?
    True wind is computed by subtracting the vessel speed from the apparent wind. The vessel speed is either referenced to the water (Speed Through Water (STW)) or the vessel speed is referenced to the gr...

  11. Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display true wind referenced to water speed?Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display true wind referenced to water speed?
    In order to display true wind referenced to water speed, you will need a WSO100, a DST110, and a display capable of computing true wind referenced to water speed. The WSO100 measures the apparent wind...

  12. Which Maretron products are required for me to display true wind referenced to ground speed?Which Maretron products are required for me to display true wind referenced to ground speed?
    In order to display true wind referenced to ground speed you will need a WSO100, a GPS200, a SSC200, and a display capable of computing true wind referenced to ground speed. The WSO100 measures the ap...

  13. Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display ground wind?Which Maretron products are necessary in order to display ground wind?
    In addition to a Maretron display product (DSM200, DSM250, or N2KView), you will need the following Maretron sensors in order to display ground wind. You will need a SSC200 compass (for vessel heading...

  14. Why is the WSO100 wind direction incorrectly displayed on my display?Why is the WSO100 wind direction incorrectly displayed on my display?
    WSO100 will not show the correct wind direction if it hasn't been aligned with the boat. You align the WSO100 in one of two ways, 1) align the post (there are three post attaching the top of the...

  15. I see that Maretron's DSM200 and DSM250 displays have a WSO100 configuration setting called "Installation Offset Calibration...", what is this?I see that Maretron's DSM200 and DSM250 displays have a WSO100 configuration setting called "Installation Offset Calibration...", what is this?
    Maretron's DSM200 and DSM250 displays have a WSO100 configuration setting called "Installation Offset Calibration...", which is used to electronically align the WSO100 with the vessel. Although the WS...

  16. How do I set the WSO100 installation offset using Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display?How do I set the WSO100 installation offset using Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display?
    You set the WSO100 installation offset using Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display in the following way. Enter menu mode, scroll to "Configuration…" and press enter. Scroll to "Device Configuratio...

  17. How do I clear the WSO100 installation offset using Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display?How do I clear the WSO100 installation offset using Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display?
    You clear the WSO100 installation offset using Maretron's DSM200 or DSM250 display in the following way. Enter menu mode, scroll to "Configuration…" and press enter. Scroll to "Device Configurat...

  18. How do I install a WSO100?How do I install a WSO100?
