Compas 9X


The “Compas 9X” nke is a precision sensor comparable to an inertial unit, realizing the fusion of accelerometers, gyrometers and magnetometers data in real time. It delivers a true orientation in the 3D space: heading, rolling and pitching. Movement and orientation are available at the frequency of 25 Hz (NMEA output).

The miniaturization of the sensor (MEMS components) and its integration in a new generation waterproof housing facilitates its installation on board.

Under pilot, the system uses the boat acceleration data to apply a correction on the compass heading

The combination of the 9X Compass with a Gyropilot (gyrometer integrated) enhances the pilot performance.

A standard fluxgate compass does not provide the boat’s acceleration data. Therefore, there is a damping for compass heading data in order to get a stable value; otherwise it would not be useable. The integrated gyrometer in the autopilot partly compensates for this but with clean data coming from the 9X Compass, the performance is even better.
