LORD Sensing, MicroStrain expands GX5 portfolio with a lower cost option, the 3DM-CX5. The lower-cost inertial sensor fills a gap in the GX5 and the board mountable OEM CV5 package. According to Chris Arnold, LORD Sensing Product Manager, “This new model gives customers the flexibility to easily move between models based on price and performance requirements, selecting the features they need, while not paying for the ones they don’t. Customers benefit from the proven GX5 performance at an OEM price.”
With compact chassis or board mount option for embedded application, the CV5 and CX5 are interchangeable with the same mounting footprint and communication protocol. Each sensor is fully calibrated and temperature compensated. Models offer:
- Low-cost, compact size and full 360-degree measurement range about all axes;
- Full accuracy over the entire operational temperature range of -40°C to 85°C; and,
- Auto-Adaptive Extended Kalman Filter for optimal dynamic accuracy and on-vehicle performance.
