Furuno SC130 Satellite Compass
SC-130 features a Tri-sensor antenna that provides a high system accuracy for the heading of your vessel
0.25° Ideal for medium to large vessels navigating in crowded ports and making precise maneuvers, such as berthing.
The SC70 and SC130 are the latest satellite compasses built on FURUNO’s commercial-grade technology platform. These satellite compasses prove their value by increasing the accuracy of other devices, such as Radar, ARPA, Scanning Sonar, Current Indicator, Chart Plotter, ECDIS and Autopilots. They provide a highly accurate heading input to these other technologies by utilizing the very latest GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System). This satellite system is comprised of GPS, Galileo and GLONASS to ensure the highest precision and a continuous coverage. The Satellite Compass provides a variety of data, including GPS Positioning, SOG (Speed Over Ground), COG (Course Over Ground), ROT (Rate Of Turn) and 3-axis speed (bow, stern and longitudinal). All of these data assist with critical maneuvers, such as berthing. The Compass is maintenance-free - a great asset for any vessel - and connects easily into the existing shipboard network via Ethernet connection. The SC130 provides highly accurate heading data of 0.25° for autopilot, Radar, ARPA, Scanning Sonar, Current Indicator, Chart Plotter, ECDIS and Autopilots. It is ideal for medium to large vessels navigating in crowded ports and making precise maneuvers, such as berthing and docking, and is IMO Type-approved as THD, GPS and ROTI, complying with the IEC/ISO requirements. It features a rapid follow-up rate 40°/s, twice the IMO high-speed craft requirement of 20°/s. .
