Industrial Inertial Sensors Reset Size Standards

Xsens’ MTi 600-series inertial motion sensors are touted as setting a new standard in the market for small size, industrial-grade performance, and competitive pricing. Supplied in a 31.5 mm x 28 mm x 13 mm IP51-rated case, they produce roll and pitch readings accurate to ±0.2°. GNSS-assisted heading (yaw) measurements are accurate to ±1.0°. Among the products’ features are a CAN bus interface and NMEA compatibility.

To achieve this performance, Xsens tweaked its latest sensor fusion algorithms, which optimize the output from unique accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer components. Models in the MTi 600-series include:

  • MTi-610 IMU with fully calibrated sensor data outputs
  • MTi-620 VRU offering roll and pitch measurements accurate to ±0.2°
  • MTi-630 AHRS offering roll and pitch measurements accurate to ±0.2° and yaw measurements accurate to ±1.5°
  • MTi-670 GNSS/INS with GNSS support offering roll and pitch measurements accurate to ±0.2°, yaw measurements accurate to ±1.0°, and global positioning data supplied by an external GNSS receiver

The MTi 600-series modules are available for sampling on request. Mass production is expected to begin in July 2019. For more details, checkout the MTi 600-series page.
