Meridian Gyrocompasses

Marine Navigation Systems

Highly accurate performance with low cost of ownership

The Meridian gyrocompass product range is suitable for the ever-changing needs of a modern integrated navigation bridge system. This includes highly accurate performance with low cost of ownership and system flexibility. Due to the Meridian’s small size and fast settle time of less than 45 minutes, there are no limits to the type of vessel for which it is suitable.

The Meridian gyrocompass can be installed as a stand-alone unit or, together with any of the Meridian range of repeaters and ancillaries, it becomes a single, dual or triple gyro system. The Meridian can also be used to replace many existing gyrocompasses as a retrofit unit.

For simple installation the Meridian offers a large array of digital and analogue outputs plus easy to use set-up and self-test modes that are activated via the control unit. The versatility and flexibility of the Meridian can be clearly demonstrated with the remote control unit option which gives freedom to install the main unit in the most convenient location whilst installing the remote control unit where it can be seen and regularly used.

Unlike other marine navigation gyrocompass currently available, the Meridian has a maintenance-free dry element with a meantime between failure of more than 30,000 hours; and post- installation there are no scheduled annual maintenance and servicing costs.
