The S3 is stand-alone digital variometer with a speed to fly function and altitude display that fits into a standard 57 mm (2¼") panel cut-out. The S3 uses an integrated high precision digital pressure sensor,that samples at a rate greater than 100 Hz..  It is available with printed scales of ± 5 m/s or ± 10 kts.  Within the software, the user may select other ranges such as 5 kts, 10 kts or 20 kts for better sensitivity in the East or a larger range for the strong Western thermals!

All functions of the S3 are controlled using the rotary-push knob on the front face.

The mechanical vario needle is driven with a stepper motor and all other data is displayed on a 320 x 240 pixel, two-inch, extremely bright sunshine readable colour display.

  • Upper, middle or lower number can be configured as average vario, altitude, altitude in feet, flight level, flight time, voltage, speed to fly, absolute pressure .
