|Digital Yacht HSC100 Fetaures
Accurate compass heading data remains a fundamental parameter for marine navigation and the Digital Yacht HSC100 uses fluxgate technology to deliver heading data for on board systems. Typical applications include enabling course up and true motion type displays on chart plotters, radar overlay onto electronic charts and stabilisation of radars when used for MARPA/ARPA target tracking. Integrated instrument systems can also benefit from having compass information to calculate real time tidal set and drift when interfaced with a log and GPS.
Most low cost heading sensors only output data at 1Hz (once per second) but the Digital Yacht HSC100 outputs at 10Hz which is required for MARPA target tracking and accurate radar overlays.
Now also released a new “Rate of Turn” version of the Digital Yacht HSC100 that outputs the HDT and ROT messages required by a Class A transponder. For non-mandatory vessels, this provides a simple low cost solution for adding heading and rate of turn to Class A transponders (Digital Yacht HSC100T).
The Digital Yacht HSC100 is waterproof (to IPx7) so can be mounted externally on steel hulled vessels. It also features an automatic calibration routine to compensate for the effects of nearby magnetic influences. This involves turning the boat through 1.5 circles at a constant angular velocity whilst in calibration mode. Once completed, typical accuracies are within 0.5 degrees.
