Airmar H2183 Heading Sensor - Solid State - 10 Hz

Brand: Airmar
Product Code: H2183-10

The solid-state three-axis compass, combined with Airmar’s additional advanced sensors and software provide unparalleled performance. What sets the H2183 apart from the competition is its ability to maintain 2° of heading accuracy under dynamic motion conditions, such as steep heeling, hard turns, and rough seas. Heading integrated with the three-axis rate gyro and three-axis accelerometer data allows the H2183 to maintain 2° of accuracy even if the vessel is pitching and rolling up to 30°. This level of accuracy is perfect for interfacing with autopilots, chart plotters, and radar systems.

  • Better than 1° heading accuracy in static conditions

  • Best-in-class 2° heading accuracy in dynamic conditions

  • Three-axis solid-state compass provides heading data

  • Three-axis accelerometer provides pitch and roll data

  • Three-axis rate gyro provides rate-of-turn data

  • Compass calibration can be easily done on any display or PC

  • Default 10 Hz update rate for heading (HDG)

  • Outputs NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 data simultaneously
