Satellite Compass SCX-21 with four GNSS Antennes(GPS, QZSS, GLONASS, Galileo) for extreme accuracy the performance of your navigation equipment such as Radar, Fishfinders, Sonar and Autopilot. Also suitable for other makers. 1.0 degree heading accuracy Read more..
Great four separate GNSS antennas for the most accurate response. The new FURUNO SCX-20 Satellite Compass provides a reliable-and-accurate heading for all your marine electronics. 1.0 degree heading accuracy and 0.02 degree knot speed accuracy.
Normally, a satellite compass ™ calculates the course using on baseline between two antennas.
Fellow competitors have a heading accuracy that fluctuates by +/- 5˚ with a quick update, which means that an echo track is indistinguishable and that is confusing.
The FURUNO SCX-21's four antennas system can calculate heading information using any of the six baselines between the four antennas. The design of the SCX-20 allows you to accurately calculate heading, pitch, roll and heave information.
The accuracy of the course improves the performance of your current onboard equipment such as Radar, Fish Finders, Sonar and Autopilots. The accurate heading information enables you to track a more accurate course, saving time, fuel and money on every trip;
The SCX-21 measures the boat's forward Y-axis speed over the ground like a normal GPS. But because the sensor also knows how the boat rolls, thumps and hoists - and because specifying the size and location of the boat is part of the installation process - it can also control left-right X-axis speeds on the bow and stern determine.
You can also set the SCX 21 to deliver 3-axis speed at the height you prefer, such as at your boat's waterline. This is very useful, for example, if you bump into a floating dock that is hard to see from the helm.
The SCX-21 Satellite Compass is easy to install and effortlessly connects to existing Furuno navigation equipment and is even suitable for very small boats that need a good course.
Sail360 expects that the SCX21 will eventually also be mounted on boats that are not even equipped with Furuno equipment because of the accuracy, flexible installation options and very small dimensions.
On some vessels interference occurs caused by signal blockage this occurs when a Satellite Compass receives a signal from paths other than direct line of sight, such as when the view of satellites is obscured, or when the signal is reflected off of a bulkhead, mast, or other obstruction. The multipath phenomenon can significantly reduce the performance of Satellite Compasses and has been an ongoing issue for marine electronics installers .Because the SCX-21has four antennes this problem is reduced to a minimum / zero.
An SCX-20 satellite compass is also available, which is for the NMEA 2000 network, Please have a look here
