Industry Database

Furuno has launched two new satellite compasses which it says provide advanced navigation data for yacht owners.

The SC70 and SC130 both provide heading, rate of turn, GPS data, three-axis speed (fore-aft, transverse and stern swing) and pitch / roll with accuracy that aim to meet the strictest standards of modern navigation.

These units take advantage of GPS carrier data to provide heading accurate to 0.4° for SC70 and 0.25° for the SC130 and speed accuracy of 0.02 knots.

A variety of other data is provided by the units critical to safe manoeuvring, including position, speed over ground (SOG), course over ground (COG), rate of turn (ROT) and three-axis speed (bow, stern and longitudinal).

Both units have a short start-up time of 90 seconds and a rapid follow-up rate of 40° / second. The SC70 and SC130 can be easily integrated into an existing shipboard network via a simple Ethernet connection, meeting the IEC 61162-450 commercial approval standard.

They also both include NMEA2000 and multiple NMEA0183 ports, including high speed NMEA, for additional networking to other products.
