InCaptain F. Solid state compasses Small compasses found in clocks, mobile phones, and other electronic devices are solid-state compasses, usually built out of two or three magnetic field sensors that provide data for a microprocessor. The compass is mentioned in fourth-century AD Tamil nautical books; moreover, its early name of macchayantra fish machine suggest a Chinese origin. A compass deviation card is prepared so that the navigator can convert between compass and magnetic headings.

Creagh-Osborne, Superintendent of Compasses at the British Admiralty, introduced his Creagh-Osborne aircraft compass, which used a mixture of alcohol and distilled water to damp the compass card. Most of these compasses are designed for heavy-duty use, with high-quality needles and jeweled bearings, and many are fitted for tripod mounting for additional accuracy. This enabled mariners to navigate safely far from land, increasing sea trade, and contributing to the Age of Discovery. Mariners have long known that these measures do not completely cancel deviation; hence, they performed an additional step by measuring the compass bearing of a landmark with a known magnetic bearing.

All magnetsincluding the Earth, have two distinct poles: the north pole and the south pole. The glass-covered box or bowl contains a suspended gimbal within a binnacle. Early in the Han Dynasty, between BC,the Chinese fashioned a rudimentary compass out of lodestone A copy of the manual is preserved in the Imperial War Museum in London.

The purpose of the tritium and phosphors is The mariners compass rectified book provide illumination for the compass. Before You Set Sail with Your Compass Take your mariner compass to a professional to have it "zeroed," or adjusted for deviations that can arise due to the presence of metals in your vessel's structure.

The dry mariner's compass consists of three elements: A freely pivoting needle on a pin enclosed in a little box with a glass cover and a wind rose, whereby "the wind rose or compass card is attached to a magnetized needle in such a manner that when placed on a pivot in a box fastened in line with the keel of the ship the card would turn as the ship changed direction, indicating always what course the ship was on".

History of the compass

In dark weather they look at the south pointing needle. First the lubber line can be adjusted so that it is aligned with the direction in which the ship travels, then the effects of permanent magnets can be corrected for by small magnets fitted within the case of the compass.

For example, a magnetised rod can be created by repeatedly rubbing an iron rod with a magnetic lodestone. Deviation is the difference in angle between magnetic north and compass north as observed on the vessel.

Carlson's claims have been disputed by other scientific researchers, who have suggested that the artifact is actually a constituent piece of a decorative ornament and not a purposely built compass. The invention of the compass enabled the determination of heading when the sky was overcast or foggy.

It was of great importance in the establishment of maritime, trade, cultural, and eventually political links between India and South East Asia.
