ISO upgrade for gyro compass

The upgraded operator unit The upgraded operator unit Raytheon Anschütz

German manufacturer Raytheon Anschütz has announced an upgrade of its Standard 22 Gyro Compass System, in line with new test standards from the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new standards require gyro compasses to be compliant with bridge alert management systems. To achieve this, Raytheon Anschütz has made changes to alarm functionality, the sensor, the operator unit and the heading distribution.

A new gyro operator unit has also been introduced, based on the Nautosteer Advanced Steering operator and alarm unit hardware. It features a colour TFT display for heading information and alert presentation, as well as serial interfaces for alert communication with a central alert management system.

“Raytheon Anschütz is focused on increased safety in navigation,” said Jan Lütt, director for commercial business at Raytheon Anschütz.

“With these product revisions, the navigator gets access to a new level of alarm handling, reducing stress in critical situations. We have achieved type approval early this year, as one of the first gyro compass makers.”

“With these enhancements, the Anschütz Standard 22 offers a clear indication of status information and contributes to an optimised and intelligent presentation of alerts.”{/mprestriction}
