SBG Systems Ellipse Development Kit

SBG Ellipse Development Kit

The Ellipse Development Kit from SGB Systems offers an easy way to use and evaluate all Ellipse sensors. It speeds up both the evaluation and integration of Ellipse products into any application, saving you time and money.



The Ellipse Development Kit contains the sbgCenter application to visualize real-time sensor or orientation data for each device connected, and the Iron Calibration Tool used to calibrate magnetic sensors included in the Ellipse product range.

The sbgCenter application can be used to:

  • Visualize – Each graph view has zooming and panning capabilities allowing efficient data analysis. Various panels are available such as a 3D view representing the device orientation.
  • Configure – Ellipse settings can be modified and the result is diplayed in real time. The sbgCenter main window shows Euler Angles, Gyroscopes data, and 3D orientation.
  • Record – Create and playback recordings. Thanks to the Time Line Control, you can finely analyze a recorded motion by travelling or zooming through the time.
  • Export – You can easily configure your export text file format in order to open your recording in third party software like Excel, Matlab, or CARIS for example. Each exported data can be enabled or disabled so you export only what you need. Thanks to Google KMZ plugin, you can export your recording into Google Earth and visualize both 3D orientation and position data.

The Development kit is supplied with an Ellipse sensor and contains:

  • The user manual, including a quick start guide.
  • The sensor’s calibration report.
  • A USB Key that contains the tools and software.
  • A USB cable to connect a computer to the sensor.
  • Access to firmware updates and technical support.
