Wind direction sensor for analog instruments (Maestro/Maestro 2S)
The Maestro wind direction sensor is accurate & does the job. I can not fault any of Maximum instruments. However, aboard the boat & at home on the coast (like most everything), it has a corrosion problem. Although the plastic case & vinyl boot have never failed, the salt air corrodes the reed switches internally. The leads then break & separate from the circuit board. To avoid this, I have sprayed the circuit board & reed switches with Flex Spray, a plastic seal. So Far, so good. If you decide to do this, remove the pivot bearing the shaft seats in before applying spray.
