For technical advice, product information or to organise an installation, please register an enquiry about this product.

The Gimballed Rate Compass (GRC) has been designed to bring the full advantage of a single-axis rate-sensor to the sailing market.
The GRC utilises a gimballed rate-gyro, ensuring that the sensor is always measuring the true yaw rate, independent of any heel and trim effects. The GRC also integrates high-accuracy heel and trim sensors which can supply data via the Halcyon Gyro Processor or ACP Pilot. Heading data is also available via 10Hz NMEA output.

The GRC solves this problem by gimballing the rate-sensor, ensuring that it is always measuring the true Yaw Rate, independent of any heel and trim effects. The GRC also integrates high-accuracy Heel and Trim sensors. Lightweight single-axis gyro-stabilised compass.
