AirMar GH2183 GPS & Heading

Measurement Category: Location, Motion
Operating Environment: Above Water, Splash Zone
Mounting: Bolt on; two versions

Power Supply Type: VDC
Power Specification: 9-40 VDC; <80 mA supply current; 1100 mW power


Airmar GH2183 combines GPS positioning and highly-accurate heading information in one compact antenna. It provides heading integrated with data from the three-axis rate gyro and three-axis accelerometer to assure that the H2183 maintains 2° of accuracy. The combined GPS antenna - WAAS /EGNOS enabled - with 10 Hz fix update rate outputs NMEA 0183 or 2000, with multiple mounting options. IPX6 waterproof housing.
