The SC-130 are the latest satellite compasses, built on FURUNO’s commercial-grade technology platform. This satellite compass prove its value by increasing the accuracy of other instruments, such as Radar, Target Tracking (TT), ECDIS, AIS, Doppler Sonar and Autopilot.
It provide a highly accurate heading signal to these other technologies by utilizing the very latest GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System). This satellite system is comprised of GPS, Galileo and GLONASS to ensure the highest precision and a continuous coverage.
The SC-130 provide a variety of data, including GPS Positioning, SOG (Speed Over Ground), COG (Course Over Ground), ROT (Rate Of Turn) and 3-axis speed (bow, stern and longitudinal). All of these data assist with critical maneuvers, such as berthing.
This Compass is maintenance free and is a great asset for any vessel.
