Compasses Guide Unmanned Vehicles

The eCompass series electronic compasses includes four different models, each with a specific combination of tilt sensors, magnetometers, gyroscopes and accelerometers with RS-232, RS-485, or TTL output types. Each model is available in an economical plastic enclosure with an 8-pin, single-row, 0.1" friction header, 6-pin RJ-12 modular jack. For rugged requirements, an aluminum enclosure with a circular, 6-pin female connector is an option for each model as well.
