CONCORD, Calif., ?The technology that forms the heart of over 40 million automotive active safety systems on the road today, the Systron Donner Automotive quartz MEMS gyro, also excels in numerous off-highway applications. The MicroGyro® angular-rate sensor is available either as a standalone unit or bundled into a multi-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for industries such as agriculture, construction,
and a host of recreational vehicles ranging from boats and snowmobiles to ATVs and dirt bikes.
Because the MicroGyro® can measure an unmatched range of angular rates, it is impeccably suited for a wide variety of off-highway applications. Advances in application such as GPS-enables automated farming, event monitoring and stability control require a precision and level of performance that only the MicroGyro® can deliver.
With its piezoelectric quartz turning fork design, the MicroGyro® can withstand conditions up to 125°C, and its patented Continuous Built-In Test™ provides true continuous monitoring of sensor health and simultaneous rate sensing. These features make the MicroGyro® perfect for the harsh conditions of farming and construction and ideal for helping off-highway vehicles remain stable while roading.
The MicroGyro® also offers:
• Fully compensated SPI digital or analogue output
• Flawless performance under high g-loads
• Flexible enough to be mounted virtually anywhere on a vehicle platform
• Custom IMU package configurations available
