Digital Compass Features Small Footprint and USB Connectivity
A new, low-cost, 3-axis, tilt-compensated, solid-state digital compass that provides "drop-in compatibility" with most popular digital compasses has been introduced by OceanServer Technology, Inc. of Fall River, Massachusetts. The OS3000 Digital Compass is a 3-axis, 1.4" x 1.8" PCB and includes RS232 and USB connectivity, and a 24-bit A/D converter with digital filters, for easy integration into a wide range of applications. Accurate to 1° azimuth, with 0.1° resolution, tilt-compensation up to ±60°, and 0.1° resolution for roll and pitch, the compass components have a 50,000 G shock rating. Providing a programmable update rate from 0.1 to 20 Hz, an ASCII interface, and hard-iron calibration, the OS3000 Digital Compass can be easily embedded into another device and provides precise heading, roll and pitch data, and is ideal for rapid attitude measurement. It incorporates a 3-axis Honeywell Magneto resistive sensor, a MEMS accelerator, and is RoHS compliant. The OS3000 Digital Compass sells for $249.00 each or $199.00 ea. for 10; available at ocean-server.com; with larger quantity discounts offered.
