According to a press release from DE Editor, Meggitt Sensing Systems has announced the North American market debut of the Sensorex model SX43040, a 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. With available measurement ranges from 2 g to 10 g and angular speed ranges from 50°/s to 1500°/s, the model SX43040’s integral digital hybrid compensation (DHC) module allows the IMU to achieve accuracy of <±0.9% FS (gyro <±0.1% FS) after self-compensation of non-linearity, temperature drift, bias and misalignment errors.
Bandwidth is fully user adjustable over a range of 0.1 to 100 Hz (-3 dB). 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°C to +75°C (-40°F to +167°F) with a built-in self-test feature on all three axes.
