Product Announcement from OceanServer Technology, Inc.
The OS5000-S is an extremely small form factor (1" x 1") 3-Axis, tilt compensated digital compass. The compass is connected via an RS232 Serial connection. The OS5000-S provides precise heading, roll and pitch data ideal for rapid attitude measurement. The compass offers an easy to use ASCII interface, hard and soft-iron calibration and simple data configuration for your application. The OS5000-S is the next generation replacement to the OceanServer OS1000 compass.
