MWD-Compass: Dynamic North Finding

Gyrocompass: dynamic north finding

Due to the use of modern fibre-optic gyroscopes, the MWD Compass registers the earth’s rate of rotation, e.g. process in spite of shocks and vibration.

There are no mechanically driven parts in the unit. Therefore the heading can be acquired during the pipe jacking process:

measurement while drilling.

The device can be modified for other applications.

Data Sheet


underground construction (tunnelling, mining, etc.)

guidance of construction machines

Special Features

high precision north finding measurement due to three fibre-optic gyroscopes

after settling time, the heading can be read out continously

determination of absolute position and attitude in 3D-coordinates

waterproff housing IP 68

suitable for operation with construction machinery
