Award-Winning Wind and Barometric Instruments Added to Fugawi’s Line Up


Macintosh HD:Users:Nevermore:Desktop:FUGAWI-logo_400px.jpgFugawi, innovator in marine navigation software and distributor of highly sought after marine products since 1995, announced today a partnership with LCJ Capteurs to be the exclusive distributor of the company’s full range of durable and reliable barometric and ultrasonic wind sensors in Canada and the United States.


Formed in 1999, LCJ began by developing high precision ultrasonic solid-state wind sensors with no moving parts to fit a wide range of needs for various applications at sea or on land, for both the consumer and professional markets. The product line of proven wind sensors has grown to include the first-of-its-kind NMEA 2000 BaroPlug barometric sensor that received a Special Mention at the prestigious METS trade show in Amsterdam in November 2014.


When plugged directly into an NMEA 2000 backbone, the BaroPlug immediately transmits atmospheric pressure data to any compatible display on a vessel. The full range of LCJ sensors are designed to be compact, light, inconspicuous, with a low energy draw, and constructed in an environment friendly manufacturing process. Built to the highest standards, LCJ focuses on quality at a competitive price.


"We are very happy to partner with Fugawi to make our hi-tech marine products, such as the CV7 wind sensors and the award-winning BaroPlug available to North American boaters,” said Christophe Michel, president, LCJ Capteurs. “Fugawi has been an innovator in the marine market and is known for its excellent technical support and customer service. We look forward to the incredible potential this partnership will bring.”


“We are proud to have been selected to bring the LCJ innovative line of sensors to North American boaters,” said Robin Martel, president, Fugawi. “Already well known in Europe for their precision and durability due to a lack of moving parts, we are excited to show them for the first time at the upcoming Miami International Boat Show."
