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.
underground construction (tunnelling, mining, etc.)
guidance of construction machines
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
