The Periscope ship weather station is designed to measure, collect and display weather data.

Features and advantages

— Touch screen 8” or 10.4”, trackball (with adjustable pressure)/mouse
— Data output in NMEA format
— Data from weather sensors are obtained in NMEA, ASCII formats
— Built-in heating for operation in cold environment
— Received data are recorded in the ship’s log and exported into XLS format
— Pictorial or graphical types of data presentation (figures or line graphs)
— Different measurement units at option
— Water temperature sensor and 5 meteorological sensors are optionally available
— Some sensors are equipped with built-in GPS-receivers (gyrocompass and log connection is not required to define ship speed and course and calculate true wind parameters).
