Overview

The DSP-1760 Fiber Optic Gyro from KVH is a small, precision instrument offering maximum ease of integration. Size reduction is achieved with proprietary E-Core ThinFiber technology, where KVH’s optics fiber is reduced (by 30 %) to 170 microns. These gyros deliver very high accuracy, bandwidth and low noise.

The sensor boasts a solid state design with improved electronics. It offers excellent performance in scale factor non-linearity, angle random walk and bias stability.

Up to three axes are configured with a Micro-D 15-pin connector or circular bayonet 13-pin connector. The configuration selected is built into a lightweight, environmentally sealed housing for reliability and durability. Furthermore, the 1760 fiber optics gyro contains magnetic shielding, which augments its performance in problematic environments.

Commercial applications include robots for pipeline inspection, automation systems for mining, system platform stabilization, navigation, guidance and control.

Features

  • Outstanding bias stability
  • RS-422 digital interface
  • Magnetically shielded
