Yokogawa CMZ900S Gyro System & Control Box MKC320
Yokogawa CMZ900 Gyrocompass System Series replaces the CMZ700 Gyro Series.
The new Gyro Series consists of three model types, depending on your maritime application:
CMZ900B: Single-unit model, for small vessels
CMZ900S: Single-unit model, for all merchant vessels
CMZ900D: Dual-unit model for extra reliability
The CMZ900S Gyrocompass system consists of a single MKN026 Master Compass and a MKC320 Control Box. This combination provides the commercial user with a multitude of outputs, Speed and Error Heading correction and Emergency Power operation from the vessel’s 24VDC emergency attery system.
CMZ900S Feature Summary:
(See Spec Sheet for Details)
- The CMZ900 Series facilitates easy adaptation for customized systems and installations.
- Improved vibration and anti-shock mechanism has been achieved by incorporating a new universal joint and outer bellows dampening system, in addition to the rubber isolator and the existing bellows damper.
- The reduced size & weight of the container and improved follow-up speed, allows the gyrocompass’ repeater compasses to keep a smooth, synchronous track of the heading, even onboard fast-turning small vessels.
- The master compass and control box of the CMZ900S can be installed in either the PT500 or 70 Series Autopilot stand.
- Automatic Speed Error Correction, derived by an input from the speed log and position (latitude) information from device - such as a GPS, etc.
- Selectable External Heading Sensors (magnetic compass, GPS compass, etc.); driving all repeaters connected to the 900 Series System. The repeater heading is automatically synchronized with the gyro heading; when the external device is “selected”, the repeaters are again synchronized to the external heading device. CMZ900S Gyro standard feature.
CMZ900S Basic Unit Configuration:
Master Compass (MKM026): consists of a control unit, container unit, and anti-vibration mechanism. The north seeking gyrosphere is suspended in the container unit.
Control Box MKC326:
* Consists of a power supply unit, control unit and computing unit engaged in speed error correction of the ship's heading signal.
* Amplifies heading signals coming from the master compass.
* Amplified heading signals distributed to repeater compasses and other ship's equipment, depending on type of format the equipment requires.
