Precision-9 Compass

£559.16

Supplies heading and rate-of-turn information to B&G autopilot, radar and navigation systems

  • Heading, Rate Of Turn (ROT), roll, and pitch output over NMEA 2000®
  • Heading and ROT calculated using sensor data from 9 axes of rotation and motion
  • Accurate and reliable solid-state sensor technology
  • Heading accuracy of ±2° after calibration
  • Easily adjustable mounting bracket allows bulkhead or up-mast installation
  • Simple installation with a single NMEA 2000® connection
Categories: , , , SKU: 000-12607-001

The Precision-9 Compass supplies heading and rate-of-turn information to B&G instrument, autopilot, radar and navigation systems. Incorporating a nine-axis array of solid-state motion and orientation sensors, the Precision-9 also provides accurate roll, pitch and heave data to compatible equipment via its NMEA 2000® interface. An adjustable mounting bracket and single-cable connection allow simple and cost-effective installation aboard any vessel, including an up-mast mounting option suitable for steel hulls.

NMEA 2000® Heading & ROT Output
With NMEA 2000® output, the Precision-9 Compass provides heading, Rate Of Turn (ROT), roll and pitch information to connected equipment including autopilot, instruments, radar, multifunction displays, and other navigational systems.

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: heading, heel, trim, roll, pitch, yaw, surge and sway. Data from all nine axes is used 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.
