Simrad Precision 9 compass

Overview

 

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 autopilots, radar, multifunction displays, and other navigational systems.

Solid-State Sensor Technology

The Precision-9 Compass incorporates a sophisticated 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 allows 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 and, with an IPX7 waterproof rating, external up-mast installation is possible on steel hulled vessels to avoid magnetic interference. Installation is further simplified by NMEA 2000® connectivity, with a single cable carrying both power and data.
