    compass with the aircraft to determine Magnetic Headings (MH). The master site compass must be properly calibrated and certified for use. One example of the equipment used in this method is the Barfield SC Compass compensation and preparation of a compass card is . Compass adjustment is the compensation of these deviating forces with correctors. The deviations on principle headings, typically the cardinal (N, E, S & W) headings and intercardinal (NE, SE, SW & NW) headings are identified and then correctors are employed to remove or reduce the deviation.

    Additional information: Compass adjustment Compass adjustment is needed to minimise the influence of the ship to the magnetic compasses ability to seek the earth’s magnetic north. The ship as a whole is a magnet of it’s own and has, on location of the magnetic compass binnacle, a . And the basic theory is unchanged from that time; the composite graph shown earlier of the components of magnetic deviation is from the Handbook of Magnetic Compass Adjustment issued by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in Other Sources of Magnetic Deviation.

    Magnetic Compass Adjustment and Records of D eviations. The aim of this notice is to give advice on the frequency and necessity of adjusting the Magnetic Compass.

The magnetic compass, when used on a steel ship, must be so corrected for the ship's magnetic conditions that its operation approximates that of a nonmagnetic ship.

Ship's magnetic conditions create deviations of the magnetic compass as well as. The term compass adjustment refers to any change of permanent magnet or soft iron correctors to reduce normal compass errors.

Magnetic Compass Adjuster course enables ship’s officer to carry out the adjustment themselves and keep compass calibrated to avoid SIRE findings.

According to AMSA, failure to maintain a magnetic compass in a good working order or to monitor deviations may result in a vessel being delayed or detained, and the vessel owner and/or Master can.

Vessel owners and masters each have responsibilities for ensuring that magnetic compasses are maintained in good working order, adjusted and a table or curve of residual deviations is performance of the compass should be monitored and, for a vessel more than GT, deviations recorded in a compass deviation book at regular intervals, ideally at least once every watch and also.

Edward "Skip" Schott, our full-time compass adjustor, has performed this service for 37 years. A small non-magnetic screwdriver is provided for this purpose. On bracket and deck models, the black plastic inserts must be removed to gain access to the slotted compensator rod ends.

Before starting compensation, check the area around the compass to make sure all material of a magnetic nature is secure and in its sea-going position.

Gard Alert: Maintenance and adjustment of magnetic compasses While today’s seafarers tend to treat the magnetic compass as a piece of excessive navigational equipment, it is important to emphasise that the presence of this compass is a requirement under SOLAS Reg.V/19 and it is also the only navigational directional device onboard that is.

If the aircraft compass is not in alignment with magnetic north, adjust the north-south compensator screw with a non-metallic screwdriver until the compass reads 0 degrees.

Align the aircraft. Compass has carrier specific certifications and training programs throughout the year. Specific insurance carriers require adjusters to complete a certification program to handle their insurance claims.

At Compass, we will notify you of any carrier specific certifications and/ or training as they come available. 3. The magnetic fields of the adjustment mechanism in the compass. These are really magnets set 90 degrees apart. The whole compensation exercise is to remove the influence of 2 and 3, so that only the magnetic fields of the earth operate on the compass.

If we do that, the compass will display the correct magnetic directions.3. Compensation 12 Benefits 12 Leaves 13 4.
