How to choose this product
A gyrocompass is an electromechanical device that indicates true north. This non-magnetic device uses gyroscopic inertia, gravity and the earth's rotation to align with a meridian.
These instruments are subject to certain errors. For example, steaming error, a sudden course and speed change, causes deviation until the gyroscope can adjust itself. A GPS, autopilot, ECDIS, VHF data radio and other bridge instruments can be connected to the gyrocompass. This allows corrections to be applied by a small computer.
The heart of a gyrocompass is a gyroscope, a spinning wheel mounted on gimbals so that the wheel's axis is free to orient itself in any direction. The gyroscope becomes a gyrocompass as torque is applied whenever the axis is not pointing north. Torque commonly is applied by friction or by weights, forcing the axis to point to the celestial pole. The latter method is the most common in maritime navigation.
How to choose
The compatibility with other bridge equipment must be taken into account when selecting a gyrocompass, which must be suitable for long-distance marine navigation.
