Ellipse 2 Micro IMU

SBG Ellipse 2 Micro Series

Manufacturer: | Category:

The Ellipse 2 Micro Series from SBG Systems provides the high accuracy in a small, economic package providing industrial-grade IMU, AHRS, and INS for high volume projects.



Ellipse 2 Micro Series from SBG Systems is available as an IMU, or as an AHRS or INS running an Extended Kalman Filter and provides high accuracy for volume projects.

The unit is available in three models to best fit your project requirements:

  • Ellipse 2 Micro IMU – an inertial measurement unit that includes three gyroscopes, three accelerometers, three magnetometers and a temperature sensor
  • Ellipse 2 Micro AHRS – adds an extended Kalman kilter to provide pitch, roll, heave and heading
  • Ellipse 2 Micro INS – also connects to an odometer for navigation and a GNSS receiver

The Ellipse 2 Micro Series is suitable for marine, land and aerospace applications.

For marine applications, the micro sensor provides a 5 cm heave that is adjusted automatically to the wave period. Fusion with a GNSS receiver provides a robust position and heave in all conditions.

When used for land applications, fusion with an odometer and a GNSS receiver enables robust position in all conditions (forests, tunnels, urban canyons, etc.). The unit also has specific motion algorithms dedicated to land vehicles and supports the CAN Protocol.

Aerospace applications benefit from the calibration that is done from -40 °C to +85 °C for a constant behavior in all environments. The unit also has high resistance to shock and vibrations (< 2,000 g), while fusion with a GNSS receiver provides high accuracy position and heading.

A development kit consisting of Windows based software and an evaluation board allows for easy integration to your systems. The software offers real-time data visualization and easy configuration through motion profiles, data Analysis by zooming through time, and export to Excel, Matlab and Google Earth formats
