Gyro Compass

The Gyro compass is a non-magnetic compass that uses a motor-driven gyroscope to indicate the true north. Thus, it gathers navigational data and helps you travel through the maritime environment. Course and speed dependent travel errors have to be taken into account, and therefore the device is mostly used on slower ships. As they work independently of the geomagnetic field, they show you the astronomical (true north) not the magnetical north direction.

Gyro compasses for ships

A gyro compass is the right choice for you when you need a high precision maritime application which helps with offshore operations as well as seabed mapping. The high quality gyro compasses in our shop navigate you safely through the maritime environment.

Sometimes the gyro compass can have some steaming errors (rapid changes in course speed and latitude that cause deviations before the gyro can adjust). Especially on modern ships, the GPS, or other navigational systems feed into the gyro compass and thus helps to reduce errors.

Two types of gyro compasses

There are two different types of gyro compasses:

  1. A type that uses a gyroscope motor and does not depend on magnetism showing the directions of true north.
  2. A type that has a motorized gyroscope, which then interacts with the force produced by the earth’s rotation. Thus, it provides a stable directional reference.

The principals of a gyro compass

While using a gyro compass, connect it to a stable source of power. To minimize errors caused by the ship’s motion, it is placed on the wheelhouse close to the centre of roll, pitch and yaw of a vessel. Furthermore, repeaters are placed at convenient places throughout the ship.

The gyro compass depends upon four natural phenomena:

  • gyroscopic inertia
  • precession
  • earth’s rotation
  • gravity
