The following course converters are offered for individual retrofit solutions:
- Serial/360° Synchro Converter
The serial/360° synchro converter converts serial heading information (NMEA or course bus) into a coarse synchro output (360°, compatible to 11 CX synchro) and can be used to connect NautoCourse® or old autopilots to new compasses.
- Serial/Universal Synchro Converter
The serial/universal synchro converter converts serial heading information (NMEA or course bus) into various synchro signals. It is used when an old gyro compass with synchro output is replaced with a new Standard 22 to keep the existing equipment with synchro input.
- Serial/Universal Step Converter
The serial/universal step converter converts serial heading information (NMEA or course bus) into step (6step / degree) signals. It is used when an old gyro compass with step output is replaced with a new Standard 22 to keep the existing equipment with step input. It can be alternatively used as a step booster.
