6-Axis Inertial Measurement Unit Fully Compensated Measurement of Angular Rate and Linear Accleration Analog and Digital Outputs No calibration required
The IMU300CB is an intelligent six-degree-of-freedom (6DOF) Inertial System designed for general
measurement of linear acceleration and angular rate in dynamic environments.
The IMU300CB uses a high
performance Digital Signal Processor to provide outputs that are compensated for deterministic error
sources within the unit. Internal compensation includes offset, scale factor, and alignment.
All six of the IMU300CB sensing elements are solid-state devices. The three angular rate sensors are bulk
micro-machined vibratory MEMS sensors that utilize Coriolis force to measure angular rate independently
of acceleration. The three MEMS accelerometers are surface micro-machined silicon devices that use
differential capacitance to sense acceleration.
The IMU300CB offers both analog and digital outputs for easy system integration. Two user selectable digital output modes are provided. In
scaled sensor mode, the sensor signals are sampled, converted to digital data, compensated, and scaled
to engineering units. In voltage mode, the sensor signals are sampled and converted to digital data in voltage units.
Each Inertial System comes with a Userís Manual offering helpful hints on programming, installation, and product information. In addition, the GYRO-VIEW software is included to assist you in system development and evaluation, and
allows you to perform data acquisition.
