Gyro Compass Simrad GC80/85

GC85 md

The Simrad GC series includes gyrocompasses and control units to suit any vessel type and application; from IMO-approved GC80 and GC85 solutions for merchant cargo ships, passenger vessels, and dynamic positioning Offshore Service Vessels, to the compact RGC50 for smaller non-SOLAS workboats, ferries and commercial fishing vessels.

IMO type approved for use aboard standard and High Speed Craft respectively, Simrad GC80 and GC85 gyrocompasses are available with Compact, Dual or Expanded control units for installation as part of a single or multi gyro system. These control units offer a range stepper and NMEA 0183 heading outputs for direct connection to heading repeaters, ECDIS, radar, autopilot and other navigation systems. Easily incorporrated into new vessels or retrofits, the GC80 and GC85 suit a variety of applications from navigation for merchant vessels to dynamic positioning for OSVs.

These gyrocompasses were designed to meet the requirements of demanding offshore applications, and combine sophisticated technology with low-RPM rotation to eliminate the need for regular annual service or oil changes. In the event that service is required, the fully-sealed sensitive elements are field-swappable to allow for onboard service - minimizing or eliminating vessel downtime.
