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.


With various combinations of sensors, the eCompasses can serve as precision orientation components for unmanned vehicles, robotics, weather buoys, platform/antenna positioning, marine navigation, satellite ground stations and more. For more details, visit the eCompasse product-data page.
