Fiber Optic Inertial Measurement Unit High Bandwidth Angular Rate and Linear Acceleration Measurement Fiber Optic Gyro Stability Analog and Digital Outputs No Calibration Required
The IMU600CA is a six-degree-of freedom (6DOF) Inertial Measurement unit that provides accurate monitoring of linear acceleration and angular rate. The IMU600CA uses the latest in fiber optic rate gyro technology resulting in superior performance, reliability, and stability over time. Example applications include GPS/INS navigation, dynamic positioning and avionics.
The IMU600CA offers wide bandwidth measurement of acceleration and rotation rate about three orthogonal axes. The IMU600CA employs on bord digital processing to sample data, compensate for deterministic errors, and format digital and analog outputs in engineering units.
The IMU600CA sensing elements are solid-state devices that have no moving parts. The three fiber optic rate gyros employ the sagnac effect to measure angular rate independently of acceleration. The three accelerometers are silicon MEMS devices that use differential capacitance to sense acceleration. The IMU600CA has three output options (one analog and two digital modes) to allow for easy integration into measurement and control systems.
EAch Inertial System comes with a User's 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.
