Standard 22 NX

Standard 22 NX will continue the tradition of Anschütz gyro compasses, which are known for rock-solid performance and an unbeatable price-performance ratio over a long lifetime. The reliability and proven design from Standard 22 forms the baseline of the new gyro. Added value results from an enhanced functional range, for example an additional integrated display for heading and status indication and a direct output to rate-of-turn indicators.
