New Furuno satellite compass SC33: ideal for every kind of vessel

yacht satellite compass

yacht satellite compassFURUNO ITALIA introduces the new SC33 Satellite Compass. which provides highly accurate attitude information for navigation equipment such as radar, plotter, autopilot, fish finder and sonar. The new SC-33 has been designed to be the perfect heading sensor for your Multi-Function Display (MFD), such as NavNet TZtouch and TZtouch2 series, and any other navigation instruments using the NMEA2000/CAN bus. This all-in-one system delivers incredibly accurate heading and roll & pitch information of ±0.4° as well as heaving information, GPS position, SOG (Speed Over Ground), COG (Course Over Ground) and ROT (Rate Of Turn) data.

Employing a two-antenna system with a 3-axis gyro and acceleration sensors, the SC33 enables high-speed response capability. The latest available functions such as Target Tracking and True Echo trail can be activated when the SC-33 heading sensor is connected to a Radar supporting both functions. The SC-33 provides any AIS receiver with the most accurate heading and positioning data to ensure the safest navigation. For Sonars without stabilizers, the SC-33 can provide Pitch and Roll Compensation so the detection remains stable.

With its compact GNSS antenna and built-in processor, it can be used for a wide variety of applications on any type of vessel. NMEA2000 interface is standard for simple installation, while the optional interface unit IF-NMEASC is available for conventional NMEA0183, AD10 and contact closure.
