Standard 30 MF, Gyro compass

Standard 30 MF
based on hemispherical resonator gyro technology

The Hemispherical Resonator Gyroscope is a high performance angular rate or rotation sensor. The Anschütz Standard 30 MF Gyro Compass is a maintenance free gyro compasses based on this hemispherical resonator gyro (HRGs) technology.

The use of HRG technology together with the simple design makes it extremely reliable with no wear and tear and no need for maintenance.

Key Benefits

High accuracy and reliability

Standard 30 MF uses superior hemispherical resonator gyro technology, known in the maritime market for more than 10 years.

  • Ultra-robust design, high accuracy over lifetime without drift 
  • Settling time of only one hour, settles at rough sea states 
  • Provides heading output even if speed and latitude input fails – a significant advantage over other compass systems

Advanced functional range

Standard 30 MF provides a multitude of features and is easy to integrate into the most varied system environments.

  • Heading sensor and MRU in one (roll and pitch output), thus reduction in investment and maintenance cost
  • Webserver functionality for configuration, software update and diagnosis – no need of proprietary tools
  • Approved as gyro compass for high-speed craft and rate-of-turn indicator

Worry-free operation

State-of-the-art design and maintenance-free operation make Standard 30 MF perfect for demanding newbuilding and retrofit projects.

  • Superior and durable HRG technology (MTBF >100,000 h) 
  • High cost-effectiveness over lifetime, free of maintenance 
  • Less complex than other strap-down compasses (such as FOGs), resulting in long lifetime and high longterm stability
