Quark-elec are proud to introduce a new addition to its range of products, the QK-AS08 three-axis compass & Attitude Sensor.
Recently launched, QK-AS08 is a compact, high-performance gyro electronic compass and attitude sensor. It has an integrated 3-axis magnetometer, 3-axis rate gyro and together with the 3-axis accelerometer using advanced stabilization algorithms to deliver precise, reliable heading and vessel attitude including pitch and roll readings in real time.
QK-AS08 Provides heading, pitch and roll data in NMEA 0183 and USB port. It enables 0.4° compass heading, and 0.6° roll and pitch accuracy and displays the heading data on the panel.
The AS08 has been pre-calibrated for maximum accuracy and super electromagnetic compatibility with frequency of up to 10Hz update rate for heading. It can be used out of the box. Simply connect it with a 12V DC power and it will immediately start calculating the heading, pitch and roll data of the boat and outputting this information. You can filter out this message type if not required (using the Windows configuration tool with AS08).
The AS08 outputs the NMEA 0183 format data via USB and RS422 port. Users can easily connect it to their computer or NMEA 0183 listeners to share information with navigational software, chart plotters, autopilots, vessel data recorder, and dedicated instrument displays.
The QK-AS08 is suitable not just for the marine market but for anyone wanting real-time information regarding heading, pitch and roll of an aircraft, vessel or vehicle.
