Crossbow Releases Entry Level IMUs, Gyros

SAN JOSE, CA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Crossbow Technology, Inc., a leading developer of Inertial Systems for commercial, general aviation and military applications, announced the release of its new 320-series family of entry-level inertial measurement units (IMU320) and vertical gyroscopes (VG320).

The 320-series IMU and VG products are designed for demanding land vehicle control environments, yet they also offer a truly cost-effective solution for satellite antenna pointing, vehicle dynamics test instrumentation, and general purpose inertial measurement applications. Fielded systems have accumulated well over 100,000 hours of trouble-free operation.

With prices starting at under $1,000, these entry-level 320-series inertial systems establish a new price/performance category for field-proven high-reliability dynamic measurement systems. "We are very pleased to announce the release of the 320-series family of products," said Mike Horton, President/CEO, Crossbow Technology. "The 320-series inertial measurement systems incorporate sensor technology that has already been validated in our high-volume OEM customer applications, and this creates an exciting opportunity for customers with cost-sensitive applications to apply our technology with confidence."
