Precision-9 Compass 000-12607-001
The Precision-9 Compass supplies accurate heading and rate-of-turn information to Simrad, B&G and Lowrance autopilot, radar and navigation systems over an NMEA 2000® connection. With an internal array of solid-state sensors constantly measuring motion and orientation on nine axes, the Precision-9 also provides pitch and roll data to compatible equipment. An easily adjustable mounting bracket and single-cable connection allow simple installation aboard any vessel, including up-mast mounting suitable for steel hulls.
The Precision-9 is recommended for MARPA and Autopilot use.
The Precision-9 Compass incorporates a solid-state sensor array based on MEMS technology, and 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.
Mounts almost anywhere with 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, and on steel hulled vessels where magnetic interference makes bulkhead mounting unsuitable, an IPX7 waterproof rating allows external up-mast installation.
