The WX Series Ultrasonic WeatherStation Instruments meet a growing need for real-time, site-specific weather information. These accurate units offer weather specific data to help monitor weather conditions on-site or in remote locations. These fully waterproof, all-in-one weather sensors measure apparent wind speed and angle, barometric pressure, air temperature and wind chill temperature.
The Model 220WX is Airmar’s solution for commercial fishing weather monitoring applications. Feature rich, in a Durable, Rugged, Small footprint that is IPX4 or IPX6 rated; the model 220WX calculates the theoretical wind speed and direction based upon the apparent wind, speed of the vessel, and vessel heading.
The Model 220WX internal 10Hz GPS and 3 axis electronic compass provide heading, position, speed over ground and course over ground functionality that is required for theoretical wind data processing and mobile applications. A 3D compass with dynamic stabilization provided by the 3-axis rate gyro also enhances the rate of turn data.

*When the wind speed is less than 2 m/s (4.6 MPH) and/or air temperature is below 0°C (32°F),
wind, temperature, and relative humidity readings will be less accurate.
**Wet conditions include moisture, rain, frost, dew, snow, ice and/or sea spray in the wind channel.
***Temperature and relative humidity reports invalid during heater operation.
****Airmar has made the address claiming modifications to enable compatibility with the ISO 11783
