Autonnic launches NEW IP68 Compass Sub-system at METS, Amsterdam - November 08, 2011

We are pleased to announce at METS 2011 a new series of IP68 electronic compasses of which the A5022 is the entry-level product in the range and builds on the success of the A5020 which it replaces.

After making thousands of the original A5020 it was clear to us that a further investment in tooling, electronics and software could be justified to add the following benefits:

• Improved IP rating to IP68
• Improved UV stabilized materials
• Internal space for future enhancements
• Flexible electronics to use our latest fluxgate sensors
• Rate-of-Turn data for AIS or for Off-Course Alarms
• Boot-loadable software for field upgrades or customisation

It continues to have the essential features of the original A5020:

• both NMEA-0183 and AD-10 data
• fast response for autopilots
• auto-calibration
• tilt compensated to ±45°
• full range of output options
• wide power input range for either 12v or 24v systems

Future enhancements are currently in development and include:
A5030 Pitch and Roll outputs expected July 2012
A5040 With Gyro to stabilize fast turns expected May 2012
A5050 With both Pitch and Roll and Gyro expected September 2012
