Precision-9 Compass

Precision-9, a solid-state compass that measures motion on nine separate axis alignments. Designed for both recreational and commercial markets.

Advantage of Innovation

The Precision-9 compass D which replaces the RC-42N rate compass D features modern, solid-state technology and components. Customers will notice dynamic improvements in performance of autopilot control and stabilized radar displays, including MARPA target tracking.

NMEA 2000® Heading & ROT Output

When connected to an NMEA 2000® network, the Precision-9 Compass will output Heading, Rate of Turn (ROT), Roll and Pitch data to networked autopilot, radar, sonar, multifunction displays and other navigational systems.

Solid-State Sensor Technology

The Precision-9 Compass incorporates a solid-state sensor array based on MEMS technology.

Mount Almost Anywhere

An easily adjustable mounting bracket and single-cable NMEA 2000® connectivity allow the Precision-9 Compass to be installed on any vessel, in almost any location.

Key Features
  • NMEA 2000® heading sensor for non-SOLAS vessels
  • Heading, Rate of Turn (ROT), roll and pitch output
  • Heading and ROT calculated using maximum poistions of rotation and motion
  • Accurate and reliable solid-state sensor technology
  • Heading accuracy of +/- 2° after calibration
  • Easily adjustable mounting bracket allows bulkhead or up-mast installation
  • IPX7 waterproof for external up-masting on steel hulled vessels
  • Simple installation with a single NMEA 2000® connection

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
