SANTA ROSA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PNI Sensor, the world’s foremost expert in precision location, motion tracking, and fusion of sensor systems into real-world applications, has announced a new digital magnetic compass, TargetPoint-SX – a drop-in replacement for the Vectronix DMC-SX. Priced under $800, the TargetPoint-SX delivers the highest magnetic compass accuracy at half the price.
TargetPoint-SX is ideal for design teams looking to substantially reduce overall product cost, reduce purchasing lead-times or secure a second source for existing designs. Though it requires little or no work to design into existing systems, PNI’s highly skilled application engineers are readily available for support.
TargetPoint-SX key features:
- Vectronix DMC-SX form, fit and function compatible
- Priced under $800*
- 25% power consumption
- Advanced, field-proven calibration algorithms
- Combines PNI’s high sensitivity Magneto-Inductive sensors with the latest high stability 3-axis MEMS accelerometer for superior heading accuracy
- Designed and manufactured in the United States
MEMS accelerometer technology has significantly improved in recent years thanks to the explosive volume demand for mobile phones and performance demands from the automotive industry. PNI is the recognized leader in sensing and sensor fusion algorithms in the consumer and automotive markets. Extensive experience in these markets working with the latest inertial sensors and PNI's high sensitivity magnetic sensors led to the design of the TargetPoint-SX.
“For laser rangefinder and targeting systems designers looking to replace the Vectronix DMC-SX with a higher performance part at half the price, the TargetPoint-SX is form, fit and function compatible to the DMC-SX,” said Robin Stoecker, vice president of sales and marketing at PNI Sensor.
