Compass Technology Overview
A precision stand-alone
heading sensor for sail and power.
The AutoComp 1000 employs KVH’s breakthrough digital fluxgate compass
technology to provide precision heading data to an array of systems,
including autopilots, GPS, video charts, radars, computers, and other
electronic instruments. Designed as a remote sensor, the AutoComp 1000 can
be mounted in a magnetically “clean” location (e.g., away from
speakers, motors, wiring bundles, and other sources of changing magnetic
fields), and its continuous automatic compensation feature ensures that
the most precise heading data (within ±0.5°) is available at all times.
The AutoComp 1000 is fully compatible with the NMEA 0183 output standard
and a universal interface card is available for use with other interface
