GPS Compass – KODEN KGC-222

Radiohellenic is now offering the new-for-2014 Koden KGC-222 GPS Compass forcommercial fishing vessels, workboats and high-end recreational yachts. With its streamlined antenna, professional-grade performance and standard dedicated digital display, this new system is an ideal solution for any vessel that requires precision position accuracy and output of stable, three-dimensional heading data for autopilots, radar systems, echosounders, sonar, AIS, onboard PCs and more.

The KGC-222 provides critical heave, pitch and roll information for accurate three-dimensional (latitude/longitude/altitude) positioning. Pitch and roll angle can be measured up to 30o. The ability to compensate for heave (the rise and fall of a vessel in heavy seas) can be critical to the performance of compatible electronics systems. For example, providing a professional-grade sounder such as Kodenʼs Broadband FX Series with accurate heave data can eliminate the “sawthooth” effect often seen when metering the bottom in heavy seas. Accurate heave data can also enhance the performance of compatible multibeam scanning sonar systems, stabilizing the sonar beam in the water column and improving the systemʼs “Auto Tracking” of fish schools. Stable and accurate heading and dynamic vessel movement data provided by the KGC-222 can also enhance the accuracy and performance of a wide range of marine electronics systems, including marine radars, autopilots and chartplotter displays.

The KGC-222ʼs IPX6 waterproof antenna measures approximately 24” across, 7” wide and 5.6” high, with a streamlined design that makes for a clean and elegant installation on yachts as well as commercial vessels. An included, removable bird repellent device can be affixed to the top of the antenna to prohibit seabirds from perching on the antenna.

The KGC-222 includes a dedicated LCD display/control with four easy screen modes; two Heading displays and two Nav displays. The compact KGC-222 display measures approximately 7.4” wide by 4.7” high, yet provides easy push-button controls and large LCD digital readouts of heading data and other critical information
