Modules

505-8-LCC ModuleTypical compass and navigation equipment operate by means of a mechanical device that moves in relation to an object’s (automobile, airplane, boat) relative position to the earth’s magnetic field about the X, Y, or Z axis. Electronic based compass/navigation equipment provides this same functionality but with less maintenance, better reliability, and higher accuracy. The parts found within this category consist of compass navigation sensors in ready-to-use modules.

AG1751-RG-7-A IC SensorTypical compass and navigation equipment operate by means of a mechanical device that moves in relation to an object’s (automobile, airplane, boat) relative position to the earth’s magnetic field about the X, Y, or Z axis. Electronic based compass/navigation equipment provides this same functionality but with less maintenance, better reliability, and higher accuracy. These parts consist of integrated circuits that require mounting and associated components for proper operation.
