The CG-5100 from KVH is an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) that offers versatility for commercial applications. It combines the company’s highly precise fiber optic gyroscopes with MEMS accelerometers that have been proven in demanding industrial use. All of this is housed in a compact, rugged enclosure to ensure utmost reliability.
With solid state, low drift and measurements accurate to 6 degrees of freedom, this FOG is suitable for demanding sensing operations and navigation programs that are GPS-integrated.
The CG-5100 employs the company’s own algorithms for full digital gyroscope sensor output to perform misalignment and temperature corrections. It also allows the user to select RS 232 or RS 422 output format in a convenient manner.
Applications include antenna/optical/camera stabilization, motion sensing, navigation, drilling, autonomous vehicle guidance, and GPS augmentation.
CG-5100 is manufactured under the jurisdiction of the Export Administration Act and its Export Administration Regulations.
