The HSC100 Compass Sensors use advanced fluxgate technology to deliver data to on-board ship systems and has a “smart” sensor to auto-calibrate its bearings. HSC100 can provide motion displays on chart plotting systems, radar overlays onto ECDIS systems, aids radar stabilisation and supplements MARPA/ARPA target tracking. Optional features include it being used for GPS logging and calculating tidal shifts for better navigation.
However, the HSC100 has a higher output of 10Hz due to its ability to supplement MARPA target tracking and more accurate radar overlay. It is a low-cost solution for boat owners looking towards adding a heading and rate of turn function to their Class A transponders.
