HPC (Heel Pitch Compensated) solid state Compass Transducer uses the latest
materials and precision engineering techniques to produce the highest quality
data of its kind. It is accurate to +/- 1° up to a maximum heel angle of 60° and
with an output rate that can be set up to 10Hz. Now also available as a NMEA
compatible unit which works with all NMEA 0183 systems.
The HPC features 6-axis configuration that also incorporates heel and pitch. It provides exceptionally accurate vital data, such as true wind angle, even when the boat is heeled right over. Nexus HPC Compass represents a real advance in high end racing compass transducers. It combines accuracy and the ability to integrate with a wide range of navigational systems with a stylish, sophisticated and compact structure that requires minimal space and maintenance. Now a standard component of the Nexus multi-instrumentation systems, the HPC transducer is also available as a stand-alone unit for owners looking to upgrade their existing systems. The entire instrument is the size of a small mobile phone and weighs just 40 grams.
