USB or Serial Low Cost Digital Compass-Image

The OS5000-US is an extremely small form factor (1.0" square) 3 Axis, tilt compensated digital compass. The flexible design allows customers to use either a USB or an RS232 Serial connection for system integration. The OS5000-US provides precise heading, roll and pitch data ideal for rapid attitude measurement. The compass offers an easy to use ASCII interface, soft and hard-iron calibration and simple data configuration for your application.
