NMEA 2000® Heading & ROT Output
With NMEA 2000® output, the Simrad Precision-9 Compass provides heading, Rate Of Turn (ROT), pitch and roll information to connected equipment including autopilot, radar, multifunction displays, and other navigational systems. This compass is suitable for use aboard non-SOLAS workboats, fishing vessels and other light commercial craft, in applications that do not require an IMO type-approved heading sensor.
Solid-State Sensor Technology
The Precision-9 Compass incorporates a solid-state sensor array based on MEMS technology. This high-precision array measures motion on nine separate axes in order to calculate the most accurate heading and rate-of-turn information possible, avoiding many common limitations of conventional fluxgate electronic compasses and delivering heading accuracy of ±2 degrees after calibration.
Mount Almost Anywhere
An easily adjustable mounting bracket and single-cable NMEA 2000® connectivity allow the Precision-9 Compass to be installed on any vessel, in almost any location. The compass may also be mounted directly to any flat surface without a bracket. On steel hulled vessels where magnetic interference makes bulkhead mounting unsuitable, an IPX7 waterproof rating allows external up-mast installation.
