Standard Horizon WS50 Wind Instrument

I know the ws50 is old and out of date but both wind strength and direction seem to work. My deliema is that I lack the manual on this instrument and particularly the calibration and linearization data. Anyone out there with a similiar unit?

Call SH and see if they have an old manual on hand, or one electronically. They are good to deal with. the number I have here at the house is714-827-7600. The manuals for my SH instruments are on the boat.

They should have a .pdf version of the manual available on their website. That's where I got the manual for my S/H speed/depth unit. If it isn't there, an e-mail to them should get you a copy by return e-mail, if available.

Welcome to StandardHorizon.com
Jason,

That is very nice of you to help like this. You normally don't see a manufacture post like this. When replacing things on the boat I will give Standard Horizon a good look. Thanks.


Welcome aboard to you and Catania.

Jason -- To echo what Dennis said above, thanks for posting here. I have your instruments, a 175C plotter and a Quest VHF radio on my boat. It's all good gear. I only wish you still made and marketed the instruments!

SailorMitch and Denby,

Thank you for your comments. I did not know how my post would be received. Sometimes people do not want to see manufactures on their websites. I am not here to sell anything just to make sure that Catania receives the WS50 manual he/she is looking for.
