, EZ-Compass-4  Miniature Tilt Compensated Compass

EZ-compass-4sm.jpgLow cost SOLID STATE advanced Pitch / Roll / Temperature compensated miniature 3D COMPASS / MAGNETOMETER system is built around a state of the art CMOS microcontroller utilizing AOSI’s proprietary algorithm on a 0.9″ x 2″ x 0.5″ assembled PCB.

The unit outputs continuous heading, magnetic field, dual axis tilt and temperature data over the standard USB, RS-232TTL,RS-232 rider PCB, RS-422 and  RS-485* interfaces. The AZIMUTH is generated from a 3 axis semiconductor magnetometer with 12 bit ( 0.08 deg ) resolution. The LINEAR tilt information is available with 12 bit resolution for +-90arcdeg in Pitch and Roll axis  +-180 deg. COMPASS/TILT module is perfectly suitable for numerous navigation, antenna orientation, borehole profiling, research, training, construction, entertainment and other precision orientation,  and leveling applications.

The COMPASS is able to output multi-sensor information in NMEA-0183 mode and responds to numerous generally used commands. Easy link through the Hyper Terminal Windows accessory facilitates custom calibration, hard iron compensation, data acquisition, data averaging, scan delay, dumping factor and data display.

Compass is also available in a special logging version EZ-COMPASS-4L.

SOFT NORTH: North direction could be manually reset by software to compensate for local declination angle
CABLE: Special cable for PC interfacing is available. Unit should be locally calibrated.

AILERON MODE

AileronRoll.gifEZ-COMPASS-4 operates in a special ( Aileron Roll mode ). Just like a rolling jet flying forward rolling around its longitudinal axis, the compass, while at any roll orientation inside the borehole, still outputs accurate borehole direction. Accurate direction is maintained at borehole inclinations of -75 to +75 degrees. This advanced feature sets the EZ-COMPASS-4 apart from other magnetic compasses.
