If your compass application involves vibration, acceleration, uneven terrain, or rough seas, the ECG Series, a gyro-stabilized electronic compass, is an uncompromising solution that will outperform rival units that cost more. The ECG provides remarkably accurate heading, pitch, and roll in dynamic conditions. It all starts with a precision 3-axis solid-state magnetometer. Two angular rate gyros independently stabilize pitch and roll. They augment a dual-axis, electrolytic tilt sensor that provides precise tilt measurements in static environments. Two sets of independent filters, one set for pitch and one for roll, combine gyro and electrolytic sensor measurements to provide the best available tilt measurements.
The ECV eCompass Series is a 3D electronic compass providing stable azimuth, pitch, and roll measurements in dynamic conditions. As an enhanced version of our ECG Series, the ECV includes a full suite of precision, 3-axis, MEMS sensors, and an optional dual-axis electrolytic tilt sensor, for the ultimate in near-level accuracy. A high-performance microcontroller orchestrates the fast measurement sequence, sensor calibration adjustments, frame-of-reference translations, trigonometric calculations, and advanced signal processing required to provide accurate heading, pitch, and roll outputs.
