    The sophisticated auto compass calibration routines will correct for the magnetic effects of the platform. Wide dynamic range of the magnetometer (±1 G or 100 µT) allows the HMR3000 to be useful in applications with large local magnetic fields.

    Supply power to HMR3000 (6-15V at the unregulated power input or 5V regulated). If you purchased a HMR3000 Demonstration Kit, use the power and interface cable to connect between HMR3000 and your computer’s COM port. Make sure the line voltage selection (110 or 220V) in the adapter is appropriate and that 6 Vdc or higher output voltage (<15V) is selected.

  • Page 9: Installation

    The HMR3000 Compass module’s RS-485 interface is half duplex, i.e. transmit and receive circuits share the same physical pair of wires. The HMR3000 must disable its transmitter to allow characters to be received from a host system. If the unit is operating in Run mode, i.e.

  • Page 10: Operation Of Hmr3000 In Detail

    A microprocessor controls the measurement sequence of the sensors, and all the parameters that control the operation are stored in an EEPROM. The output sentences of the HMR3000 conform to the NMEA 0813 standard for Marine communication.

    HMR3000 in Continuous Mode at the rates programmed in EEPROM. HMR3000 also responds to all input messages from the host. An HMR3000 response to a command input may be delayed due to transmission of an unsolicited output. The host must wait for HMR3000 to respond to the last command input before sending another command message.

  • Page 14: Output

    The ASCII display message is not expected to commingle with the other six NMEA messages. It is intended for simpler systems where the HMR3000 is connected to a numerical readout device instead of a host processor.

    Heading, Pitch, & Roll $PTNTHPR,x.x,a,x.x,a,x.x,a*hh<cr><lf> This sentence combines HMR3000’s three significant measurements with useful status information. Data fields represent, in order: heading, magnetic field status, pitch, pitch status, roll, and roll status. Heading, pitch, and roll measurements are presented in degrees or mils depending on the setting in EEPROM. The heading measurement is corrected for deviation and variation when these factors are programmed in the EEPROM.

    This sentence provides raw tilt and magnetic measurements for diagnostic use. Contents of each field represent A/D readings for, in order: TiltAp, TiltAm, TiltBp, TiltBm, MagA, MagB, MagC, MagAsr, MagBsr, MagCsr. All values represent the actual A/D readings from the most recent conversions, except that tilt readings are adjusted if low gain was used for the conversion.

  • Page 17: Checksum Filed

    3.11 Checksum Filed This absolute value is calculated by exclusive OR operation on 8 data bits (ASCII code) (no start or stop bits) of each character in the message, between, but excluding “$” and “*” (or between “#” and “*”) characters. The hexadecimal value of the most significant and the least significant 4 bits of the result is converted to two ASCII characters (0-9, A-F) for transmission.

  • Page 20: Measurement Parameters

    Measurement Parameters Parameters in this section affect the measurement functions of the compass board. “Mag sample rate” is a key setting that affects both continuous and strobe mode measurements. In continuous mode, either 1, 2, 4, or 8 magnetometer measurements are averaged per tilt measurement depending on the “Mag sample rate” setting. In strobe mode, measurements are suspended until an NMEA query command is received.
