Precision-9 Compass

Product details
Heading Sensor with Rate Of Turn
This compact sensor package provides heading, rate of turn, pitch and roll data to equipment connected over an industry-standard NMEA 2000® network. More than just a compass, the Precision-9 is an ideal source of heading and motion data for Simrad autopilots, radar systems, multifunction displays, and other systems.

Solid-State Sensor Technology
The Precision-9 measures motion on nine separate axes in order to calculate the most accurate heading and rate-of-turn information possible. Its sophisticated solid-state design avoids many common limitations of conventional fluxgate electronic compasses, and delivers heading accuracy of ±2 degrees after calibration.

Mount Almost Anywhere
An easily adjustable mounting bracket allows the Precision-9 to be installed on any vessel, in almost any location. The Precision-9 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.
