B&G, Lowrance, Simrad Precision-9 Compass NMEA2000 Heading, Heel and Trim Sensor

Manufacturer Part No: 000-12607-001 | ID: 158768 | £424.17 ex-VAT

The Precision-9 Compass supplies accurate heading and rate-of-turn information to B&G, Lowrance,Simrad 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.

  • Heading accuracy of ±2° after calibration
  • Easily adjustable mounting bracket allows bulkhead or up-mast installation
  • IPX7 waterproof for external up-mast mounting on steel hulled vessels
  • Simple installation with a single NMEA 2000® connection

 

Features

NMEA 2000® Heading & ROT Output

With NMEA 2000® output, the Simrad Precision-9 Compass provides heading, Rate Of Turn (ROT), pitch and roll information to connected equipment including autopilots, radar, multifunction displays, and other navigational systems.

Solid-State Sensor Technology

The Precision-9 Compass incorporates a sophisticated solid-state sensor array based on MEMS technology. This high-precision array measures motion on nine separate axes in order 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.

Mount Almost Anywhere

An easily adjustable mounting bracket allows 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 and, with an IPX7 waterproof rating, external up-mast installation is possible on steel hulled vessels to avoid magnetic interference. Installation is further simplified by NMEA 2000® connectivity, with a single cable carrying both power and data.
