LCJ Capteurs design and manufacture sonic wind sensors since 1999:
Their mission is to offer the best ultrasonic wind sensors, compact, light, inconspicuous and low energy with environment friendly manufacturing, high standards, unbeatable lead times and reasonable prices. Their wind vanes and anemometers are well adapted to many applications including recreation and professional use in fields such as leisure marine, heavy marine, mobiles on land, smart buildings, wind farms, sound measurement, environment, agriculture, etc…
UNIVERSAL WIND SENSOR:
Whatever your equipment on board, old or young, the interface is able to communicate all given information by the LCJ CAPTEURS sensor to your equipment Navigator.
Technical features of the interface:
– Octocoupled NEMA0183 input
– NMEA0183 ouput
– Anemometer output: impulsion with open connectors
– Weather vane : sinus / cosinus or three phase
– Consumption : 9 to 16 V DC
– According to the type and the brand of the screen, the adjustment will be different. You have to follow the user manual to do the setting. You just have to active or not some buttons.
– To offset the heading linde, press the B+ or B-.
CV7SF2 – ultrasonic wind sensor wireless new generation:
Designed for day-boats, cruise sailing boats, club houses, sport grounds, parks, local weather stations.
It includes the same transmission radio protocol that the CV7SF. Our know-how is recongnized and approuved by our customers.
The major improvement of this product is that it could work under daylight and night time. The sensor is endowed wind measurement frequency about 16 Hz. By calculation, it could have a data refresh about 2 Hz frequency.
The product is provided with a battery last technology, type of LiFePo4. The main feature is that the battery can be charged or discharged lots of time. Moreover, the battery is compatible with high temparatures, that we can see at the top of the mats. On the other hand, the battery is interchangeable.
Furthermore, a barometer has been added on this product.
The CV7SF2 is compatible with :NMEA0183, NMEA2000 *, Bluetooth *, Wifi *
* with option
Not any more fuss with link-rods and belts,No more ropes at the mast step!
The tests that we conducted on this static mast angle sensor allow us to validate its full compatibility with our RM option (Rotating Mast), NMEA2000 interface for rotative mast. The RM LCJ Capteurs is compatible with all our models from the CV7 range and also with the CV7-C model .
SMART simplifies the installation of your angle sensor: no more need for link-rods or belts!
This sensor provides the advantages of a direct 12V power supply, as well as an output, compatible with our RM NMEA 2000 control unit. Regarding performance, it offers excellent linearity (watch the animated tutorial).
Mount the magnet under the mast, mount the SMART sensor on the roof, calibrate the RM interface… and that’s it!
The SMART position sensor selected by LCJ CAPTEURS is one of the most long lasting position captors available on the market, that is linear, adjustable and light weight. It allows accurate control of movement and improves the efficiency and safety of operations. It is simple and its design, which eliminates the risk of mechanical failures, improves its reliability and durability.
The SMART position sensor detects the position of a magnet in relation to the sensor. There are two detection ranges available: 0 to 100° and from 0 to 180°.
This junction box has a terminal block for receiving the standard USB cable. It makes it possible to use the data (Speed, angle and temperature) with software navigation or dedicated device that reads and uses this data. The USB junction box and the sensor are powered by the USB connection.
Option for Windows PC.
Nexus NX2, SILVA and FI30
The mechanical masthead of these instrumentation models is no longer manufactured nowadays and the CV7 is the ideal replacement for the original sensors.
CV7-Sil is a software configuration for CV7 models.
To achieve this configuration, simply connect the CV7 to the serial port of a PC and use our dedicated configuration software.
CV3F is the sensor which built LCJ Capteurs’ reputation. It was specifically designed for all-weather working boats. CV3F is the flagship product of LCJ Capteurs. Since its introduction to the market in 2001, thousands of crews sailing everywhere in the world are using wind data provided by this sensor.
It is a must have piece of equipment for coast guards, life-boats, professional fishermen, cargo ships, passengers boats and many other boats where wind data is constantly required.
This sensor can be plugged in to any navigation equipment or software application featuring an NMEA® input port.
All LCJ Capteurs are designed and manufactured in the Nantes region in France where they are fully tested throughout the manufacturing process.
NEW ! Plug and Play ultrasonic wid sensor interface for NMEA 2000 systems.
WindyPlug is a BaroPlug with an interface to connect anu of our Ultrasonic Wind Sensors to a NMEA2000 system.
It features a MICRO C male plug to connect directly to the NMEA 2000 bus. This is a Plug and Play device : Just install the sensor or your NMEA system’s backbone to read atmospheric pressure, wind speed, wind angle, wind temp.
WindyPlug weights 35 gr and measures 13 cm long for less than 2 cm diameter.
The measurement is displayed a resolution of millibar or one-tenth millibar (mb).It’s also available in inches of mercury (“Hg). It measures the pressure from 850 hPa to 1150 hPa to one decimal resolution and sends the relevant pgn to the NMEA network.
You may also connect your WindyPlug with all NMEA2000 marine display equipment compatible, of new and old generation!
For one WindyPlug unit, there are two virtual WindyPlug; you simply have to select the WindyPlug from the list of the devices connected:
– WindyPlug V2 (NMEA2000 V2 previous 2014, millibar resolution, 1012 mb)
– WindyPlug V3 (NMEA2000 V3 later than 2014, one tenth millibar resolution, 1012,2 mb).
The interface connects to the end CV7, CV7-V or CV7-C standard cable.
This method simplifies the installation with a lightweight, flexible and small diameter cable in the mast.
BaroPlug is a plug and play barometer for NMEA2000 instruments systems
The BaroPlug “Dual”, NMEA2000 Barometer is now even easier!
First of its kind, it features a MICRO plug and a LED indicator. Plug it to the NMEA backbone, and read immediately the atmospheric pressure on any compatible display.
BaroPlug weights 35 gr and measures 8 cm long for less than 2 cm diameter.
The simplicity of the BaroPlug allows it to choose the reading resolution. The measurement is displayed a resolution of millibar or one-tenth millibar (mb).It’s also available in inches of mercury (“Hg). It measures the pressure from 850 hPa to 1150 hPa to one decimal resolution and sends the relevant pgn to the NMEA network.
You may also connect your BaroPlug with all NMEA2000 marine display equipment compatible, of new and old generation!
For one BaroPlug unit, there are two virtual BaroPlug; you simply have to select the BaroPlug from the list of the devices connected:
– BaroPlug V2 (NMEA2000 V2 previous 2014, millibar resolution, 1012 mb)
– BaroPlug V3 (NMEA2000 V3 later than 2014, one tenth millibar resolution, 1012,2 mb)
The BaroPlug is factory tested, it’s could be eventually corrected by your NMEA2000 equipment.
Temperature is included in the information that it sent by the BaroPlug. For this, place the BaroPlug in a well-ventilated place, and shaded.
It will be an excellent measuring temperature device under shelters.
