The display has 4 red digits, and a ROT bar graph. The buttons are used to align heading. Features include the automatic wide range of inputs plus a selection of options.

The repeater is built in an industry standard DIN housing 144 x 72 mm. It has a trunnion mount and a front panel lip for flush mounting.

Applications include display of heading or for use as a gyro signal to NMEA converter for satellite television, radar, ECDIS and other electronic instrumentation.

This E-type 950 includes the interfacing of log, GPS and echo sounder, with a “pass-through” function. The option tables show the current capabilities.
