Identify north in the blink of an eye and measure your bearing with a magnetic needle that works with the Earth's magnetic field! Buy your new second-hand or outlet gyroscopic or magnetic compasses in our store. All of our compasses offered in the category are available from stock and shipped immediately. Choose it, and we guarantee its quality of use, and with fast delivery and to the desired address, with the best value for money. Equip your boat with a maritime compass to accompany you in your navigation and thus keep the course easily thanks to this tool, which proves to be very efficient and reliable since it never fails. Manufacturing these marine compasses is very complex and requires a high-quality process to ensure that the tool is as reliable as possible. In that sense, a magnetic compass is usually expensive, but you can find brand-name compasses at reduced prices in our store.
There are different types of compasses:
- "The magnetic compass, whose principle of operation is, like a compass, the orientation of a magnetic needle in the Earth's magnetic field;
- The gyroscopic compass, whose principle is the gyroscopic effect, is the orientation of the axis of rotation of a spinning top (free on all 3 axes) in the direction of the Earth.
- The electronic compass determines the magnetic field from the electrical properties of certain materials subjected to a magnetic field; The four main technologies used in electronic compasses are fluxgate, Hall effect, magneto resistivity, and magneto induction.
- The satellite compass uses the difference in the signals received by two antennas to calculate the orientation of the segment that joins these two antennas in the geodetic system associated with the satellite positioning system used".
