Sparton Launches Adaptnavinit.4th NorthTek Application for GEDC-6 Digital Compass

Sparton, an electronics and electromechanical solutions manufacturer headquartered in Schaumburg, Illinois, has announced that Sparton Navigation and Exploration has developed the Adaptnavinit.4th NorthTek application that enhances the GEDC-6 gyro-enhanced digital compass.

GEDC-6 Gyro Enhanced Digital Compass

The application has been developed to fulfill the growing technical demands of the navigation sensor market. The Adaptnavinit.4th application delivers optimal performance in all environmental conditions. It enables users to operate the digital compass in noisy environments by compensating for the magnetic material interference created by current carrying wires, batteries and electric motors by eliminating integration errors caused during roll, pitch and heading.

The GEDC-6 provides high accuracy by eliminating magnetic disturbances. Providing 360° tilt-compensation pitch, roll and heading data, the gyro-enhanced digital compass also provides absolute magnetic field data in 3D. The features of the GEDC-6 include 360° rollover capability, 3-axis magnetometer and 3-axis accelerometer for advanced sensing; 2-wire UART serial interface with selectable baud rate; True North and magnetic heading, roll and pitch measurement; high resolution and static accuracy; multiple communication protocol support and an epoxy encapsulated construction.

The Vice President of Sparton Defense & Security Systems, Jim Lackemacher stated that based on the feedback and recommendations of the customers, the company has enhanced the GEDC-6 for developing the AHRS-8, an innovative product that Sparton will release in 2012. Sparton Navigation and Exploration manufactures, tests and designs hydrophones and navigation sensors for defense and commercial applications. The other navigation sensor solutions offered by the company include the DC-4 digital compass, the RM-1 ruggedized mounting adapter kit and the NDS-1 development kit for digital compasses.
