AirMar 42183 Heading Sensor

Measurement Category: Motion
Operating Environment: Above Water, Splash Zone
Mounting: Adjustable bracket.
Operating Mode: Free Streaming
Power Supply Type: VDC
Power Specification: 9-40 VDC, <30mA supply current


The AirMar 42183 Heading sensor provides heading integrated with data from the three-axis rate gyro and three-axis accelerometer to assure that the H2183 maintains 2° of accuracy. This level of accuracy is perfect for interfacing with autopilots, chart plotters, and radar systems. Designed for vessel installation, splash proof, outputs NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 strings.
