The series iMGYR-x-D angular rate sensor is realized as an advaned MEMS based gyroscope measuring rotation rate.
Compared to other gyroscopes, the MEMS gyroscope has the advantage of low noise, unsurpassed robustness and long lifetime. iMGYR-C-D and iMGYR-SN-D provide both a compensated digital output (CAN or RS232/422) and an compensated analog output as an option.
The iMGYR-SN-D comes in an ruggedized aluminum housing and contains the MEMS based sensing element followed by high sophisticated analog and digital signal processing. After a high speed digitization and a microprocessor based signal processing the iMGYR-SN provides an output signal being proportional to angular velocity. The integrated micro-processor reduces the nonlinearity to much less than 0.2% f.s and compensates the bias on the digital and analog output over temperature. As an option an input for an additional incremental encoder is available for applications in vehicle guidance. In summary the iMGYR-SN is created as an advanced "plug & measure" MEMS based angular rate sensor for easy handling and with high reliability.
