Proven Reliability, Low Maintenance

The NAVIGAT 2500 fiber optic gyro compass system is maintenance free (MF) meaning regular maintenance or calibration is not required. The fiber optic gyro compass has no moving parts and does not rely on inertial resistance to any movement. NAVIGAT 2500 is based on long proven technology applied to harsh environments and hence, the most reliable and affordable alternative to the mechanical gyro compass. In addition, the NAVIGAT 2500 does not fall under any export restriction and is available for immediate delivery and installation. It is the perfect fit for all vessels operating on tight schedules requiring high reliable heading sensors with minimal service effort at a highly competitive price point.
