Furuno has launched its SC33 satellite compass which maintains a compact design that allows for simplified installation.

The SC33 also features Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology to deliver enhanced accuracy and performance.

It is capable of utilising multiple GNSS systems such as GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and QZSS. Using parallel GNSS signal processing, the SC33 is designed to be more accurate and reliable than its predecessor, the SC30.

The ability to handle multiple GNSS systems allows the SC33 to provide accuracy of ±0.4° for heading/roll/pitch and 3m for position. The unit also has built-in temperature and pressure sensors which can output that data to the NMEA2000 network.


Its hardware and dome structure provide resistance to shock and vibration and its design is resistant to problems stemming from the multi-path of satellite signals.

The SC33 can also improve the accuracy of radar, chart plotter, autopilot, AIS, fish finder or sonar units.

Heaving compensation adjusts for vertical motion and removes the need to invoke fish finder ‘bottom lock’ display modes.

The pitch and roll compensation facilitates stable detection.
