The SC30 comes with a compact GPS antenna and built-in processor. This all-in-one system delivers incredibly accurate heading and roll & pitch information 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 SC30 enables high-speed response capability. Advanced digital signal processing techniques compute accurate heading based on sensor data. NMEA2000 interface is standard for simple installation, while the optional interface unit IF-NMEASC is available for conventional NMEA0183, AD10 and contact closure.
Revolutionary 2-antenna and rate sensor system
In order to calculate roll & pitch data, a satellite compass requires two vectors. The new SC30 employs a 2-antenna system that calculates a single vector while a 3-axis rate gyro and acceleration sensors add the 2nd vector. This configuration enables the SC30 to calculate highly accurate roll and pitch data without using a third sensor. The SC30 employs the LAMBDA algorithm developed by Prof. Teussen, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands.
