SNOQUALMIE, WA /PRNewswire/ -- Gladiator Technologies announced the release of their newest and highest performance IMU, the LandMark 50 inertial measurement unit (IMU). This new IMU builds upon the successful heritage of the company's low-noise LandMark IMU product families, including the LandMark 10, 20, 21, 22, 30 and 40. The IMU is form, fit, and function interchangeable with the LandMark 30 IMU, yet offers substantial improvement in performance with both lower noise and higher performance MEMS gyros and accelerometers.
All the LandMark IMU's share a common IMU messaging protocol for a "common cockpit" approach, giving users the option to choose the IMU performance, size, weight, and price that best suits their application without having to rewrite any IMU interface software. This latest addition to our family of IMU's offers best-in-class gyro and accelerometer noise and bias while including the other feature-rich advantages of its predecessor IMU's. The LandMark 50 features robust environmental sealing for EMI protection, as well as user selectable RS-485 data rates up to 500 Hz (4 KHz internal sampling rate), enabling exceptional performance for a variety of size and weight constrained applications. The LandMark 50 IMU has many advanced performance features including:
- Low gyro noise 0.001°/sec /√Hz
- Low accel noise 0.025 mg /√Hz
- In-run gyro bias 1°/hour 1 σ
- Fully temperature compensated bias and scale factor
- Misalignment 1 mrad and g-sensitivity <0.002°/sec/g 1σ
- External sync input (1 kHz or 1pps)
- Wide input voltage range 6 V to 36 V
- Bandwidth filtering capability
- High MTBF
- Export U.S. Commerce ECCN7A994
