The MD58 Bracket Mount from MARINE DATA is a non-ferrous Bracket Mount for attaching the MARINE DATA MD52A Ship’s Magnetic Compass Sensor to an existing ship’s magnetic compass. This bracket provides an alternative mounting option to the MD54 Adhesive Mount.
Once securely mounted, the MARINE DATA MD52A Compass Sensor can detect magnetic compass heading. This is then processed by the MD97 Compass Sensor Interface before being transmitted as NMEA 0183 data to other equipment, for example, in a Transmitting Magnetic Compass (TMC) System.
Note: A compass sensor should not be glued directly to a host compass. Performance may be reduced, maintenance made difficult or the compass sensor could even become damaged. The MD58 Bracket Mount eliminates all these issues.
For ship’s compasses where the MD58 Bracket Mount cannot be fitted, we recommend the MD54 Adhesive Mount. Finished in durable fine texture jet black powder coated paint to complement other marine navigation equipment. The MD58 Compass Sensor Mounting Bracket from MARINE DATA: easy to install and simple to maintain.
- Non-ferrous aluminium construction (brass option available)
- Supplied with pillars to support the compass when removed from its gimbal and to protect the coil
- To securely mount a Magnetic Compass Sensor (Pick-off Coil) to an existing ship’s magnetic compass
