The Standard 22 gyro compass was designed as a modular system to meet customer requirements. The system consists of up to three gyro compasses and can include an operator unit and a distribution unit. Another gyro, a magnetic compass, a satellite compass, and/or an external rate-of-turn gyro can be integrated as additional sensors. A wide range of accessories is available.
Anschütz gyro compasses are known for their superior accuracy and reliability even under harshest environmental conditions. With the Standard 22, operational safety was dramatically increased due to a patented data transmission technology that completely replaces the use of slip rings. Today its robust design makes Standard 22 the first choice for safety-sensitive vessels such as offshore / platform supply vessels or cruise ships.
The military version is the Anschütz Standard 22M Gyro Compass. In this configuration, Standard 22 also offers a special shock resistance to provide most precise navigation data in every situation.
