Any experiences with SBG Ellipse2 Sensors?

Recommended Posts

 

Does anyone have experiences with the Ellipse2-D sensor from SBG-Systems? With very accurate heading and position it is maybe a much cheaper alternative to a quadrans? You know other options to get accurate heading data?

There are many accurate sensors in the $US 5k range, but you may not have as easy a time in integrating them into your nav system, or find them in marine enclosures. 

See for example the Hemisphere  products, (you will note that they also make some integrated units that are OEM'd by Simrad. )

Using the dual antenna @ bow/stern you can get 0.01 degree heading across 10 meter length, and the H5000 will accept 10 Hz NMEA 0183.
