Compass Module for LX80x0, or LX90x0
This option allows the LX80x0 or LX90x0 to calculate wind speed and direction more accurately and rapidly. An RS-485 splitter unit is not included and may be needed.
Details are available in the LX80x0 and LX90x0 and Compass Module manuals which are available here.
Note: A different version (LXNAV-Compass-CANbus) for LXNAV S8, S80, S10 and S100 variometers over the CANbus network is also available.
The LXNAV Compass Module is comprised of a 32-bit micro-controller combined with 9 sensors (3 axis, accelerometers, magnetometers), to generate a very accurate measurement of the magnetic heading (compared to a 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 of direction information. The compass automatically calibrates itself during flight.
