The Compass Sensor uses fluxgate technology to provide the most accurate magnetic heading converted to a digital signal. Also available with Gyro. The electronic unit is weathertight, allowing an optimal installation position inside or outside the hull.
- Provides magnetic heading data
- Vessel movement compensation
- NMEA 0183
- Water resistant to IP68
- Auto Calibration
- Compatible with 3rd party displays and devices
Model A5041 Gyro Specific - Heading output is derived by additionally integrating the rate output from a MEMS yaw accelerometer or ‘gyro’ which is drift-corrected by a precision fluxgate magnetometer with pitch and roll compensation up to 45°.
Model A5024 Specific - The compass has a separate, dedicated output in Furuno AD-10 format. This is a proprietary 4 character serial format, which gives heading in degrees and tens of minutes.
