Heading Sensors - Magnetic Compass - TargetPoint SX

TargetPoint SX (Part no. 14487):


TargetPoint-SX is a SWaP-C drop-in replacement for the Vectronix® DMC-SX, delivering the highest magnetic compass accuracy, at half the price! If you're looking to substantially reduce overall product cost, reduce purchasing lead-times or looking for a second source for your existing designs, Willow's highly skilled application engineers are readily available to support you.


MEMS accelerometer technology has significantly improved in recent years thanks to the explosive volume demand for mobile phones and performance demands from the automotive industry. For laser rangefinder and targeting systems designers looking to replace the Vectronix® DMC-SX with an equivalent part, the TargetPoint SX is form, fit, and function compatible to the DMC-SX, requiring little or no work to design into existing systems.

TargetPoint-SX provides better heading accuracy and offers magnetic anomaly rejection.
