Delivering the highest magnetic compass accuracy at HALF the price of other magnetic compasses.

TargetPoint SX – Digital Magnetic Compass

For laser rangefinder and targeting systems designers using the Vectronix® DMC-SX, the TargetPoint-SX is form, fit and function compatible to the Vextronix part, requiring little or no work to design into existing systems. And it’s much less expensive.


Quarter of the power consumption extends mission duration.


Advanced, field-proven calibration algorithms to ensure accuracy.


Guaranteed availability for the next 10 years, so it’s ideal to design in now.


Combines PNI’s high sensitivity Magneto-Inductive sensors with the latest high stability 3-axis MEMS accelerometer for superior heading accuracy.


ITAR-free and made in the U.S.A.


Unlike the Vectronix DMC-SX, mounting option is software configurable. Same TargetPoint-SX part number for all your systems – reduces cost of inventory and lead times.
