Gyro 3 Axis

Designed to provide high performance operation under harsh operating conditions, the tri-axis gyro accurately measures angular motion in a compact, lightweight, robust package.

In Detail

Application

  • Precision chassis development.

Electrical

  • Supply voltage 8 to 16V unregulated
  • Reverse Polarity protection
  • Supply current 140mA @ 12V
  • Start-up supply current 225mA (0-500ms)
  • Full scalerate ±300°/s1 or ±75°/s1
  • Output scale factor:
  • 300°/s = 6.67mV/°/s nominal
  • 75°/s = 26.67mV/°/s nominal
  • Scale factor variation ±0.75%
  • Scale factor variation over operating temperature range ±1.5%
  • Scale factor rate non-linearity ±0.2% FS
  • Offset at zero angular velocity 2.50V nominal
  • Offset variation ±20mV (300°/s = ±3°/s & 75°/s = 0.75°/s)
  • Offset variation over temperature range ±30mV (300°/s = ±4.5°/s & 75°/s = 1.1°/s)
  • 8 pole 60Hz Butterworth filter2/3
  • Noise <175 µV/√Hz
  • Output  impedance 50 Ohms
  • PT1000 temperature output

Clockwise rotation about the axis identified in the drawing, will increase the output voltage, as shown in the outline drawing.

1 Combinations of both scale rates can be requested.

2 Two pole filter available upon request3.

3 -3dB point adjustable up to 90Hz.
