Solid State Electronic Digital Compass Modules.
Inertial Aerosystems have introduced two new low cost
Electronic Digital Compass modules manufactured by
U.S. based Honeywell Solid State Electronics Centre.
These plug-in miniature printed circuit boards are designed for the
OEM market in general compassing and navigation.
One module designated HMR 3300 is a three-axis tilt compensated
compass that utilises a two-axis accelerometer for performance up
to ± 60-degree tilt range. The other, HMR 3200, is a lower cost
two-axis solution without tilt compensation. Both models can operate
accurately in tough environments within a temperature of -40ºC to +85ºC.
A UART communications protocol in ASCII format is standard.
Ideal where space and weight is at a premium, they are about a third
of the size of similar performance models.
Other applications include marine compassing, navigation of unmanned
vehicles, satellite antenna positioning, integration with GPS attitude
reference, robotics and laser range finders.
