Please Note: Updated Monday, May 26, 2020  We are open for business as usual. Well, mostly usual. We hold and ship inventory locally as well as directly from manufacturers and from some marine distributors. We are doing our best to reflect inventory that is actually available, but inventory updates are slower than usual due to the changing work situations for all business. Additionally, we now have started to see longer than normal backorders from manufacturers. We recommend that if you need a product not to wait until the last minute to order, as inventory may be gone for a substantial period of time once they go on backorder. International orders may also take longer than normal to ship.

Airmar NMEA 0183 Marine Based WeatherStation (no Relative Humidity) w/Heater - WS-220WX-HTR

Model 44-856-1-01

  • Relative Humidity (RH) not available on heater models
  • Cables sold separately
  • Heater requires 24VDC


The Model 220WXH is Airmar’s solution for commercial fishing weather monitoring applications. Thermostatically controlled heating system for operation in ice-prone areas. Feature rich, in a durable, rugged, small footprint that is IPX4 or IPX6 rated; the model 220WXH calculates the theoretical wind speed and direction based upon the apparent wind, speed of the vessel, and vessel heading.

The Model 220WXH internal 10Hz GPS and three-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. Equipped with a 3D compass with dynamic stabilization provided by the 3-axis rate gyro also enhances the rate of turn data.

  • Apparent and theoretical wind speed and direction
  • Thermostatically controlled heater element
  • Barometric pressure
  • Air and wind chill temperature
  • GPS position, speed over ground, course over ground
  • Three-axis solid-state compass with dynamic stabilization
  • Three-axis rate gyro – rate of turn
  • Three-axis accelerometer – best-in-class pitch & roll performance
  • Output: Via a single cable (various lengths available)
    • NMEA 0183/Serial protocol over RS-422 standard interface OR RS232 interface
    • NOTE: The 220WXH CANNOT be used with an NMEA2000® CAN bus network
