Simrad GC80 Compact Gyro system

The unique technology in the GC80 gyrocompass eliminates the need for annual service.

Simrad GC80 Gyrocompass
The all new Simrad GC80 is fully IMO approved for standard and High Speed Craft (GC85) and can be configured in a dual gyrocompass system. The highest possible accuracy and stability is provided from new technology, by sophisticated and fully sealed sensitive element.

The best solution for any DP vessel
The Simrad GC80 gyrocompass is the ideal solution for the advanced DP system needed in offshore industry. Shipowners as well as DP system providers all over the world have learned that the Simrad GC series gyrocompass offers the most flexible gyro compass solution on the market. A combination of a Dual- and an Expanded system, consisting of all together three gyro compasses will offer a DP vessel all the heading and control information needed for effective operations under the most harsh conditions. The simple and quick installation and set-up process as well as
the fact that no annual service is required makes a Simrad gyro system the best solution for any 24/7 operator. The world wide service and warranty network ensures extra support whenever needed.

System flexibility
The most flexible Gyrocompass on the market, for installation, configuration and cost. A wide range of control units provide complete flexibility of system configuration for new installation and easy retrofit into existing repeater systems. The standard range of interfaces can easily be expanded to provide signals for all vessel applications. The distribution of power and heading signals from the control units enables practical installation and easy retrofit.

Simrad MX575B DGPS Compass

The Simrad MX575B D/GPS compass is designed to provide the MX420 navigation and AIS systems with reliable heading, ROT (Rate of Turn) and position information. The Simrad MX575B delivers a heading accuracy of better than 0.5° at update rates of up to 10 Hz. It also provides sub-meter DGPS positioning accuracy at rates of up to 5 Hz when using RTCM correction data supplied from internal beacon demodulator.

Additional Sensors
To augment the GPS-derived heading, the Simrad MX575B includes other supplemental devices. The combination of inclinometer and magnetic sensing devices aid the rate at which a heading solution is computed on startup and also speeds up reacquisition. A rate gyro provides a secondary source of heading data in times when the GPS heading is not available due to temporary obstructions. These sensors improve performance and increase dependability of the Simrad MX575B.

Interface
The Simrad MX575B features two independent RS-232 serial ports and one RS-422 port. Either RS-232 port may be configured freely for a variety of NMEA 0183 output sentences or for the input of RTCM correction data from an external source. The output of the RS-422 port mirrors that of one RS-232 port.

COAST™ Technology
The Simrad MX575B features COAST™ technology that allows it to use old correction data for up to 40 minutes without seriously affecting positioning performance. This feature offers peace of mind and allows you to focus on more important issues than reliability of a differential signal.

Improvements in Simrad MX575B DGPS Compass:
•     Improved positioning accuracy
- Horizontal GPS Accuracy 1.5m RMS
- Horizontal DGPS Accuracy 0.5m RMS

•     Improved clock performance
•     More robust clock buffer and accelerometer
•     Faster position and heading acquisition
•     Improved satellite tracking with higher ’SNR’ on both primary and secondary   channels
•     Improved Patch Antenna

Simrad RGC50 Gyrocompass for small vessels

The small, compact ”all in one” RGC50 Gyrocompass is designed for smaller vessels and non-IMO applications.

The RGC50 is a compact gyrocompass, designed to enhance the navigation capabilities on small commercial, fishing vessels, and large pleasure yachts. A gyrocompass eliminates the inconvenience and limitations of magnetic compasses, and provides a variety of electrical outputs to supply accurate and consistent heading information to other navigation equipment. The capabilities and precision of the RGC50 will provide exceptional heading information to the navigation equipment installed on your vessel.
