The B300 was designed to be a simple, uncomplicated, lower cost variometer with audio for club two seat and early solo single seat gliders as well as a high quality rate of climb instrument for powered aircraft and ultralight aircraft which may soar occasionally or use the energy in the atmosphere to enhance powered performance. Climb optimiser - green LED lights when vario is above 20 second running average reading. Simple, one mode, “ up” audio.It retains the outstanding zero stability and smooth but fast response of the other instruments in the Borgelt Instruments range and the audio* is the “UP”side of the B400/B700 audio in “Classic B40” mode. A rising tone with the tone being chopped in lift. When the lift is above the running twenty second average the Green LED on the dial lights indicating that the climb is getting better.The B300 is available in both 57mm and 80mm sizes for easy installation in existing instrument holes and is only 85mm deep behind the panel including connectors (20mm shorter than the B40).
