Extremely Accurate Heading Data for Commercial Vessels
We are excited to introduce our second generation Satellite Compass, the SC50, which utilizes Furuno?s advanced GPS Kinematic technology. Satellite Compass performance is not affected by ship?s speed, latitude, geomagnetism, etc. This hybrid integration of GPS receiver technology and a 3-axis solid-state rate sensor provide accurate and steady heading information, even when bridges or tall buildings block satellite signals. Unlike conventional magnetic and gyro compasses, accuracy is not affected by G-force or velocity. Furthermore, when compared to other GPS based compass systems incorporating only two antennas, our addition of a third GPS antenna provides enhanced accuracy while reducing the negative effects of pitch, roll, and yaw.
The SC50 offers highly accurate GPS WAAS Data for SOG, COG, ROT, and L/L. Multiple, programmable hi-speed heading data outputs allow you to send this information where you need it, and our unique Analog Pitch and Roll Output can be used to enhance your Furuno Sonar System.
This Satellite Compass is ideal as an alternative to a traditionally expensive and high-maintenance gyrocompass for non-compulsory vessels, as well as being the perfect back up solution to a gyro for a compulsory vessel. The SC50 offers a wide range of applications for providing fast, stable, precision heading information to numerous devices, including: Radar/ARPA, Satellite Communications & TV systems, Autopilots (based upon I/F type), AIS, ECDIS, Scanning Sonar, Chart Plotters, etc.

3 Inch Handle Compass Crafted from Solid Brass. BW-662 When the compass is level, an object can be viewed through the peep sights to determine its magnetic heading.When tilting the compass on its side and viewing an object through its sights, its angle of elevation or declination can be found. A weighted pendulous arm beneath the compass needle can be read from one of 3 scales: angle in degrees beneath t/zenith (from straight up), angle in degrees of elev. or declination.and in inches per yard of slope.
