    Description of Fluxgate Compass

    This fluxgate compass connects to the nke bus and it feeds the system with the magnetic compass heading value. The mounting location must be free from any magnetic influence (VHF, high power cables, radar, etc.). The 10° step compensation ensures an accurate heading. Compass heading reference is one of the key functions necessary for calculating true wind direction.

    The fluxgate compass comes with a 6 meter TOPLINE cable and a bracket for bulkhead mounting.
