The JLR-31/JLR-21 GPS compass continues the success of its predecessor, reaching a new level of performance and stability with many new features and enhancements. This system is also known as a 3D Dynamic Sensor™, which besides giving heading information, is designed to provide highly accurate information of the ships movement in all axis.
The JLR-31/JLR-21 has heave functionality built-in as standard. In rough ocean conditions (with high waves), the GPS compass can correct up and down (attitude), movement. This is especially useful for fish finders and sonars on fishing vessels where high waves are compensated for with 20cm rms accuracy, providing better potential for a profitable catch.
High speed update
The JLR-31/JLR-21 supports Speed Over Ground (SOG) and Course Over Ground (COG). The position, SOG and COG are updated every 200 milliseconds (which is 5 times faster than previous model JLR-30/JLR-20), delivering high accuracy.
JLR-31/JLR-21 and IMO recommendations
Traditionally, the means used to measure the heading of a ship has been a mechanical gyrocompass and/or a traditional magnetic compass. With the adoption of the new installation requirements in SOLAS-V, all passenger ships and all ships from 300 to 500 GT travelling international routes can now install a new technology directional sensor, the Transmitting Heading Device (THD).
JRC's new JLR-31/JLR-21, IMO type-approved as both Transmitting Heading Device (THD) and as Satellite Navigator (GPS), suits for the vessels as SOLAS-V required primary heading sensor or primary GPS.
|IMO performance standard||Gross Tonnage|
|Transmitting Heading Device (THD)||From 300GT to less than 500GT|
|Satellite Navigator (GPS)||20GT or more|
