MicroStrain Expands 3DM-GX3 Inertial Sensor Portfolio

MicroStrain has introduced a compact, less weight sensor called the 3DM-GX3-35 that has an onboard GPS receiver and a high quality attitude heading reference system (AHRS).

The GPS and the AHRS can autonomously offer time related measurements that are best suitable for solutions where end users are deploying their own GPS/INS Kalman Filter that are host -based.

MicroStrain's latest Inertial Sensor, 3DM-GX3-35

The 3DM-GX3-35 is the latest member of the 3DM-GX3 inertial sensor portfolio. It has an intense new application programming interface (API) that customizes data messages at mixed data rates for particular quantities for the end users. This precise user control will provide customized, precise and strong data and eradicate irrelevant data. The sensor’s synchronized time stamping feature offers correlation of GPS data and attitude in time for enhanced data analysis. The new API is compatible for both existing and next generation incorporated inertial sensors and thus requires less modification.

The 3DM-GX3-35 is completely standardized and compensated for an operating temperature range of -40ºC to +65ºC. In addition, the end users can specify their sensor ranges comprising ±50g, ±16g, ±5g or ±1.7g accelerometers and 1200°/sec, 600°/sec, 300°/sec and 50°/sec angular rate sensors. This compact inertial sensor integrated with GPS unit is best suitable for a number of applications such as unmanned vehicles, platform stabilization, automotive and personnel tracking.
