Why use the magnetic compas
The nautical compass plays a vital role in maritime navigation. At times it becomes necessary and relevant to safeguard the compass from weather conditions. The navigation instrument that helps serve this purpose is the binnacle. Alongside this aid, binnacles also safeguard the compasses from toppling over due to the constant rolling and pitching of the vessel. The AlphaBinnacle is available in reflector, non-reflector and naval (DG Correction) versions with two different heights.
The AlphaBinnacle can be used with a simple periscope assembly. Due to the improved water tightness around deck/periscope area, it reduces installation work for the shipyard. It can also be used as a standalone compass or even with an electronic device (TMC) in combination with the AlphaLine repeaters.
