HS4 MkII Standard Features
Four independent NMEA0183 RS422 output ports, individually configurable up to 4hz update rate and 115k baud. Activity LEDs on all channels
Ethernet interface, for system set-up and broadcast of NMEA data via UDP with compatible software applications, 4 UDP channels, 10 ports each. Auto-negotiating - no crossover cable needed
Man Overboard triggered by an external button or webpage interface - saves positions and outputs NMEA
MotionSense, ultra-responsive Course-Over-Ground / Speed-Over-Ground data using Doppler from satellites enabling equally responsive Set / Drift calculations
Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) and EGNOS position corrections. IstarGPS is WAAS and EGNOS enabled.
Precision Barometer sensor built in! Outputs barometric pressure via NMEA and UDP ports. NMEA XDR sentence.
9 - 30v input voltage range for 12v and 24v systems.
IP65 waterproof enclosure, IP68 cable entries
Antenna sharing option. Operate multiple GPS units from a single antenna or easily move all ships GPS to a spare antenna at once
Why MotionSense? Simply Better!
MotionSense is the result of calculating velocity and direction (COG/SOG) using Doppler of the GPS RF carrier. MotionSense COG/SOG is precise to within 0.1 knot and responds within 1 second - when applied to vessel speed and heading data, the result is accurate and rapid calculations of Set and Drift (water currents) .
Many marine GPS’s compute COG/SOG by comparison of successive position fixes, resulting in COG/SOG outputs that are noisy and slow to respond which in turn makes Set and Drift calculations difficult to interpret.
Instant and accurate knowledge of COG/SOG and water currents can be a powerful tool, whether docking a large vessel, entering an unfamiliar passage or yacht racing inshore and around the planet. MotionSense delivers.
