Target Compass SystemAll instruments in the Target Range come complete with sensors or transducers as appropriate and all necessary fittings. They are designed to run on 12v supply, but due to the very low power consumption there is no reason why they cannot run off dry batteries. They provides accurate readings for owners of sailing craft and powerboats alike.
The sensor is designed to be surface mounted but the unit can also be suspended, according to the most suitable location aboard. This can be done by making the adjustments shown in the instructions.
