  1. I see that Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Rate of Turn Damping Period:"; what is this? Maretron's DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 displays have a SSC200 configuration setting called "Rate of Turn Damping Period:", which is used to smooth the rate of turn indication. The rate of turn indication uses the rate of turn gyro found within th... Read More
  2. What is an SSC200? The Maretron SSC200 is a solid state, magnetic compass that is capable of measuring heading, pitch, roll, and rate of turn. The information is broadcast over an NMEA 0183 connection or an NMEA 2000 network where the information is available for any o... Read More
  3. I know that the TLA100 uses resistive tank sensors; who manufactures resistive tank sensors? To find manufacturers who provide resistive tank senders compatible with the TLA100, search the internet for these terms: fuel and sender, or try these web sites:http://www.wemausa.com http://www.moellermarine.com/aftermarket/fuel_systems/fuel_sender...

  4. I know that the WSO100 mounts on a standard marine antenna pole (1"-14 threads per inch); who manufactures standard pole mounts? To find manufacturers who provide pole mounts compatible with the WSO100, search the internet for these terms: marine and antenna and mount, or try these companies:http://shakespeare-ce.com/marine/http://acantennas.com/product-search ...

  5. Why doesn’t the WSO100 atmospheric pressure agree with my locally reported barometric pressure? The WSO100 measures atmospheric pressure, which isn't adjusted for elevation like the locally reported barometric pressure. If you use the WSO100 at sea level, then the atmospheric pressure and barometric pressure should agree, however if you us... Read More
  6. 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 measurement devices, the WSO100 was designed specifically for the ... Read More
  7. 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 mounted parallel with the earth, marine applications req... Read More
  8. 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 GPS or compass. Take for example a GPS mounted at t... Read More
