Inertial measurement unit

Monday October 04, 2010
Meggitt Sensing Systems, a Meggitt group division, has announced the North American market debut of the Sensorex model SX43040, a rugged, high-performance MEMS triaxial inertial measurement unit (IMU) with integral digital hybrid compensation, designed to provide current rate of acceleration, gravitational force and degree of freedom (DOF) measurements, including changes in roll, pitch and yaw, across three orthogonal axes. The Sensorex model SX43040 is both lightweight and compact, and incorporates MEMS technology with no moving parts, ensuring high-reliability performance within extreme environments, the company says. The unit is available in measurement ranges from two to 10 g and angular speed ranges from 50 degrees/s to 1,500 degrees/s. Bandwidth is fully user adjustable over a range of 0.1 to 100 Hz. Several outputs are simultaneously available, including digital RS485 Modbus RTU, ±5 V analog output and autotest pin, with setup parameters established via the digital interface. The Sensorex model 43040 is designed to reliably operate over a temperature range of -40 to 75 C, with a built-in self-test feature on all three axes, ensuring added measurement reliability.
