Santa Rosa, CA –  PNI Sensor, the well-established, U.S. based manufacturer of geomagnetic components and heading sensors, today introduced their new SeaTRAX magneto-inductive heading sensor. SeaTRAX meets all stringent streamer specifications at a price well under the $1000 barrier. Unlike heading sensors costing thousands more, SeaTRAX is backed by PNI Sensor Corporation’s decades of heading sensor design and manufacturing experience, making it a dramatically more cost–effective solution. And PNI is a proven source for on-time delivery, having provided a steady stream of tilt...
