Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Interesting, Ben, I too would be concerned about Maretron’s future – and why they wouldn’t even be mentioned in the announcement doesn’t look good – although that may have just been a PR fail. A WSO100 replacement would be nice to see – but not if it’s going to ultimately be orphaned by the parent! I guess time will tell…

    • Good day Grant, as the Marine Technology Group is a small portion of Carling Technologies family we are still inclusive but unfortunately not the biggest spotlight. Littelfuse has had a passion to enter into the Marine business for many years and now with the Marine Group (Maretron, OctoPlex and MPower) they now have the power to do so.

      As for an update in regards to the successor to the WSO100, the WSO200, is in the final stages of testing and certifications. We will be able to announce more accurately by the end of this year and will update the product page when this becomes available.
      We do anticipate the WSO200 to be available between end of 1st quarter to beginning 2nd quarter of 2022!

        OK, thank you Ron, great to hear from someone in the know! And thanks for the update on the WSO200, I’m looking forward to its release. Cheers,
