Low cost SOLID STATE advanced Pitch / Roll / Temperature
compensated COMPASS / MAGNETOMETER system is built around
a state of the art CMOS microcontroller utilizing AOSI's proprietary
algorithm on a 1.5" x 2" assembled PCB with a total height including
tilt sensing elements of less then 0.5".
The unit outputs continuous heading, magnetic field, dual axis tilt
and temperature data over the standard RS-232 and RS-422 and RS-
485* interfaces. The AZIMUTH is generated from a 3 axis
semiconductor magnetometer with 12 bit ( 0.08 deg ) resolution. The
LINEAR tilt information is available with 12 bit resolution for over +-
90arcdeg. COMPASS/TILT module is perfectly suitable for numerous
navigation, research, training, construction, entertainment and other
precision orientation, navigation and leveling applications.
The COMPASS is able to output multi-sensor information in NMEA-0
183 mode and responds to numerous generally used commands.
Easy link through the Hyper Terminal Windows accessory facilitates
custom calibration, hard iron compensation,
data acquisition, data averaging, scan delay, dumping factor and
