Furuno THD (Sat Compass) SC-70

Wheelmark approved satellite compass with high accuracy 
  • features a Tri-sensor antenna that provides high accuracy
  • Type-approved as THD, GPS and ROTI
  • utilizes GNSS such as Galileo and GLONASS for high precision
  • super short starting time - 90 seconds


Precise and accurate Heading

The SC-70 and SC-130 are the latest satellite compasses built on FURUNO’s commercial-grade technology platform.
These satellite compasses prove their value by increasing the accuracy of other devices, such as Radar, ARPA, Scanning Sonar, Current Indicator, Chart Plotter, ECDIS and Autopilots. They provide a highly accurate heading input to these other technologies by utilizing the very latest GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System). This satellite system is comprised of GPS, Galileo and GLONASS to ensure the highest precision and a continuous coverage.

Bow and Stern monitoring for safe berthing

The Satellite Compass provides a variety of data, including GPS Positioning, SOG (Speed Over Ground), COG (Course Over Ground), ROT (Rate Of Turn) and 3-axis speed (bow, stern and longitudinal). All of these data assist with critical maneuvers, such as berthing.
The Compass is maintenance-free - a great asset for any vessel - and connects easily into the existing shipboard network via Ethernet connection.

IMO Type Approved as THD, GPS and ROTI

The SC70 provides highly accurate heading data of 0.4° for autopilot, Radar, ARPA, Scanning Sonar, Current Indicator, Chart Plotter, ECDIS and Autopilots. It is ideal for small to medium boats requiring highly accurate heading, and is IMO Type-approved as THD, GPS and ROTI, complying with the IEC/ISO requirements. It features a rapid follow-up rate 40°/s, twice the IMO high-speed craft requirement of 20°/s.
