  • Measured value:

    geomagnetic field

  • Application domain:

    for boats, ships

  • Other characteristics:



The Autonnic Compass Pick Up Sensor takes the magnetic data generated by an existing yacht compass and converts it into NMEA0183 data to use for a variety of on-board purposes. The Pick Up Sensor avoids the need to install a standalone compass unit minimising cost and system complexity. Its roots are found in larger vessels where the ship’s compass is precisely calibrated and for certification purposes acts as the reference point for all navigation systems.
