JLR-10 Receives IMO Type Approval

Tuesday, July 29, 2003
JRC has received IMO type approval on the JLR-10, a GPS based direction-sensing system. JRC’s new GPS Compass is not affected by the speed of the vessel or the magnetic influence of steel-hulled ships or any magnetic anomaly, such as large metal deposits, underwater structures or magnetic deviations at Northern and Southern Latitudes that affect magnetic compasses. Physically smaller, lightweight and with a power usage of less than 20 watts, JRC’s GPS Compass offers a new option for vessels that found a gyro’s dimensions, ongoing maintenance and amperage requirements prohibitive. The JLR-10 is designed as a plug-and-play input to provide the vessels heading information to navigation systems with ship’s heading, speed over ground, course over ground and position data. Internal sensors mounted within the main processor unit corrects pitch and roll.
