The Marine Data MD71TMC is a Transmitting Magnetic Compass (TMC) System which detects and transmits the ship’s Compass Heading over a NMEA 0183 digital connection to one or more Compass Heading Repeaters at any convenient location on a vessel.
The MD71TMC uses the latest technology to accurately process and convert the ship’s magnetic compass heading to NMEA 0183 heading data with unparalleled accuracy. TMC systems from Marine Data are simple and intuitive to use with quick and easy installation and on-board calibration.
Automatic calibration of the Magnetic Sensor Coil with host ship’s magnetic compass by turning the ship through 390°
Intuitive menu-driven installer assistance when mounting the Sensor Coil to the ship’s host magnetic compass
Dual power supply inputs
Bright OLED display provides good clarity with high contrast and wide viewing angles
Output: 2x NMEA 0183 data channels
PARTS INCLUDED IN THIS TMC SYSTEM
MD52A/B – Compass sensor
MD97CSP – Compass sensor processor
MD71THD – Control and Display unit; provides 2x digital NMEA 0183 outputs; applies Magnetic Corrections to digital NMEA outputs; displays the heading**
10 m D-type 9-way interconnect cable (CAN Bus)
2.5 m D-type 15-way data cable for supplying system power and carrying 2x NMEA 0183 data channel outputs
REQUIRED SENSOR MOUNTING OPTION
Optional Sensor Mount MD54 or MD58 – this is not included as standard because it depends on the type of host magnetic compass. Please let Marine Data know the type of Magnetic Compass you will be fitting to so we can determine the correct sensor mount.
