How do I set the WSO100 wind damping period using Maretron’s DSM250 display?

You set the WSO100 wind damping period using Maretron's DSM150 or DSM250 display in the following way:

  1. Enter menu mode, scroll to "Configuration…" and press < Enter >
  2. Scroll to "Device Configuration…" and press < Enter >
  3. Scroll to the row containing the WSO100 and press < Enter >
  4. Scroll to "Wind Data Damping Period:" and press < Enter >
  5. Set the damping period lower to see very quick changes in wind speed and direction or set the period higher to smooth out wind readings. The damping period is actually a moving average filter so you must be careful not to set the period to high because this introduces latency or delay in the reported wind speed and direction.
