MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) introduced its
HG1171 Series 6DF IMU sensors which are designed to provide key data for automated
steering, stability and vehicle controls in a variety of potential agricultural, construction and material handling equipment applications.
The HG1171 Series uses MEMS (Micro Electromechanical Machined Sensors)
technology already widely used in aerospace applications for navigation and control, where our customer needs to have enhanced performance in sensing rotation rate and acceleration. The HG1171 Series features enhanced fault monitoring and reporting to verify correct operation, a capability available on Honeywell products.
Integration of the microcontroller, sensors and communication interfaces on the
HG1171 Series allows for software customization, which can save development time and
money. The HG1171 Series sensors feature a high-speed CAN bus, enhanced temperature
performance, low noise and high resolution, packaged in a tough metal housing designed for most harsh environments.
