Navigation-Grade Accelerometer Takes On High-Performance Chores

iXblue’s iXal A5 debuts as the company’s first navigation-grade accelerometer dedicated to high-performance applications. The component is based on the Vibrating Beam Accelerometer (VBA) technology and the Vibrating Inertial Accelerometer (VIA) concept developed by the French aerospace lab ONERA and industrialized by iXblue.

 

The iXal A5 is a rugged sensor that provides high accuracy and repeatability, as well as a high input range (±100 g) and an insensitivity to magnetic fields. The sensor can thus be used in various high-performance civil and defense applications including land, air, surface and underwater navigation, guidance, bridge monitoring and stability, as well as offshore drilling platform monitoring.
