Inertial Labs IMU-P Tactical S MEMS IMU

Inertial Labs IMU-P Tactical S MEMS IMU

Manufacturer: | Categories: ,

The IMU-P Tactical S from Inertial Labs is a professional inertial measurement unit (IMU) that contains 3 ultra-high performance MEMS accelerometers and 3 highly accurate advanced MEMS gyroscopes.



The IMU-P Tactical S from Inertial Labs is a new generation IMU that offers compact size, light weight and high performance. It is temperature calibrated within its operational temperature range to ensure tactical grade performance in a wide range of environments and applications.

This cost effective ITAR-free solution is ideal for systems requiring the high performance levels that, previously, only FOG-based IMUs could provide. Based on advanced MEMS sensors, the IMU-P Tactical S measures pitch & roll, linear acceleration and angular rate. Angular rates and accelerations are measured with high accuracy for both dynamic and motionless applications.

Mathematically aligned to an orthogonal coordinate system, the IMU-P Tactical S demonstrate less than 1 °/hr gyroscopes and 0.005 mg accelerometers bias in-run stability with very low noise and high reliability. Continuous built-in test, configurable communications protocols, electromagnetic interference protection, and flexible input power requirements make the IMU-P Tactical S easy to use in a wide range of higher order integrated system applications.
