  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. What information does the WSO100 provide? The WSO100 provides the following information:apparent wind speedapparent wind directionatmospheric pressureair temperaturerelative humidity... 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. How do I set the WSO100 atmospheric pressure offset using Maretron’s DSM150 or DSM250 display? You set the WSO100 atmospheric pressure offset using Maretron's DSM150 or DSM250 display in the following way:Enter menu mode, scroll to "Configuration…" and press < Enter >Scroll to "Device Configuration…" and press < Enter >Scroll to the row c...

  8. Why is the WSO100 wind direction incorrectly displayed on my display? The 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:align the post (there are three posts attaching the top of the WSO100 to the base) closest to the humidity senso... Read More
  9. I see that Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200 and DSM250 displays have a WSO100 configuration setting called "Installation Offset Calibration..."; what is this? Maretron's DSM150, 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 WSO100 can be mechanically aligned with... Read More
  10. How do I set the WSO100 installation offset using Maretron’s DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 display? You set the WSO100 installation offset using Maretron's DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250 display in the following way:Enter menu mode, scroll to "Configuration…" and press < Enter >Scroll to "Device Configuration…" and press < Enter >Scroll to the row ...
