EC2000 adopts hard and soft magnetic calibration algorithm, uses special calibration technology and provides high accuracy inclination signal, and it has perfect cross connect performance.

EC2000 integrates 3-axis magneto-inductive sensors, 3-axis MEMS accelerometer and central processing unit to calculate the heading data in real time and compensate the heading when it has inclination angle. EC2000 enjoys compact size, high accuracy, low power consumption, which is widely used in antnna poiting, vehicle, system integration fields.

An accurate digital compass has become an essential tool for modern travelers relying on technology for navigation. Unlike traditional compasses, it is not easily influenced by external factors, providing more reliable and precise readings. The importance of an accurate digital compass lies in its precision, versatility, reliability, and affordability. It allows travelers to navigate with confidence and accuracy, making it crucial for safety in outdoor activities. It can be used in various environments, including indoor and outdoor settings, and is less prone to errors and malfunctions compared to other navigation tools. When choosing a compass, factors such as accuracy, durability, ease of use, and additional features should be considered. Regular calibration is necessary to ensure optimal performance. By selecting the right compass and calibrating it correctly, travelers can confidently find their way in any situation.
