MAGNETIC BALANCE ZONES:
The earth’s magnetic field does not flow evenly between the magnetic poles along the surface of the planet. The local magnetic field lines tilt as you approach a pole, flowing completely vertical at either pole. To compensate for the natural tilt in the magnetic field FRENSON compasses have a balancing system with needles balanced for each magnetic zone, that results in much faster needle settling times and excellent needle stability while running.
MN - Magnetic North
NME - North magnetic Equator
ME - Magnetic Equator
SME - South magnetic Equator
