Frequently asked questions

The Magnetic Disturber Detection (MDD) gives feedback on whether the compass is influenced by external magnetic disturbers. If activated, the DMC displays a “Probability Value” in percent, which is calculated based on history data, precisely from last 12-point compensation procedure. The value indicates the whether a measurement is disturbed more than a given value.

The System State Compensation (SSC) is a feature unique to the DMC-pico only. This is a software which allows the removal of influences due to magnetism for different states in host system. This can save the integrator from expensive last-minute design changes. And the good thing is that no additional hardware is required.

Example: The host system has different operational states. Instead of performing / saving / restoring a 4- / 12-point for each state, just do one compensation and measure once the “deltas”, then restore the deviations based on the host system state (= added / removed disturbers).

Example states are: Camera on / off, battery powered / remote powered

Yes, here we recommend using the DMC-pico as it measures within a range of 360°. This means that the line of sight is fully under the control of the user.
