Walker 7080 is an integrated log, wind and weather system that includes a true wind option. Ship?s speed and distance travelled is derived from a Walker electromagnetic (EM) log transducer. Alternatively, log NMEA 0183 serial data may be used. A comprehensive range of Walker wind sensors are available to collect wind data. The weather data functions include measurement of barometric pressure, air temperature and humidity by sensors housed in a single tower and water temperature via a sensor installed in a seawater inlet pipe.
This compact, cost effective system takes advantage of state-of-the-art electronics to process log, wind and weather sensor inputs, and outputs serial data on a IEC61162-1 (NMEA 0183) data bus. Log, wind and weather elements may be specified separately or in various combinations.
