The Meggitt (Sensorex) SX43030 Inertial Measurement Unit incorporates 3 accelerometers and 3 gyrometers, positioned in the three XYZ orthogonal axis.
The six sensors give an analogue information, proportional to the angular speed and to the acceleration applied.
Thanks to the conditioning circuit, the voltage output (±5V standard) and the bandwidth can be adjusted according to the application.
Outside temperature is given thanks to a probe integrated in the housing. This enables error compensation by taking into account the sensor thermal coefficients.
The user can then process the information gathered, according to the parameters he wishes to measure (displacement, speed, localization…).
This IMU needs a non regulated 12V (9 to 16V) or 24V (12 to 36V) nominal voltage.
