Heading Sensors - Magnetic Compass - 'NEW' TargetPoint TCM

TargetPoint TCM (Part no. 14470):

TargetPoint-TCM-14470

TargetPoint TCM is a new product that incorporates magnetometers, accelerometers and gyroscopes for unmatched performance in real-world conditions. It features optional DMC or AHRS mode with magnetic anomaly rejection, new and improved user calibration for higher accuracy, and supports PNI’s TCM and TRAX family interface protocols.

 

TargetPoint TCM combines PNI’s high sensitivity Magneto-Inductive sensors with the latest high stability 3-axis MEMS accelerometer and 3-axis MEMS gyroscopes providing accurate orientation while in motion and in magnetically challenging environments. TargetPoint TCM excels in conditions that cause errors in traditional digital magnetic compasses.

 

It uses advanced magnetic distortion compensation and calibration scoring algorithms to counter the effects of hard and soft iron interference, providing highly accurate heading information in almost any environment and orientation.
