Compass module

Fast and accurate magnetic sensor




The LX Magnetic compass comprises of a 32bit microcontroller combined with 9 sensors (3 axis, accelerometers, magnetometers), to generate a very accurate measurement of magnetic heading (compared with GPS calculation). The Magnetic heading is tilt compensated, calculations are performed 50 times per second and produce a stable reference heading for wind calculations and course change and direction information. The Compass automatically calibrates itself during flight. The LX Magnetic compass can be added to any existing or new LX90xx or LX80xx units through a standard RS485 bus connection. Compass will work only with V9, V8 or V80 variometer.
