Xsens MTi-1 IMU Sensor Module

Xsens MTi-1 IMU Sensor Module

Manufacturer: | Categories: ,

The MTi-1 IMU sensor module from Xsens is part of the MTi 1-series. This is the smallest series of products available from Xsens, thanks to the use of their latest miniature MEMS technology. The MTi 1-series offers you the smallest industrial grade form factor on the market, with each module measuring only 12.1 mm x 12.1 mm and weighing <1 g.



The MTi-1 IMU sensor module from Xsens is a self-contained Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). It provides calibrated data on the rate of turn, the acceleration and the magnetic field – all in 3D. Tested and temperature bias-calibrated, it is a robust, reliable sensor module. Designed for easy integration in high-volume applications, the MTi-1 is also the most cost-effective product for Surface Mountable Device (SMD) integration. Its signal processing pipeline and suite of output options give you access to the highest possible accuracy at any output data rate, while limiting the load on your application processor.

The MT Software Suite Xsens gives you easy access to the MTi-1. The suite contains a specially developed, easy-to-use graphical user interface, as well as drivers for various operating systems. It also offers many other useful tools, for example source code and documentation. The MT Software Suite includes different software programs, such as:

  • MT Manager (GUI)
  • MT SDK, including programming examples for C, C++, C#, MATLAB, Python, ROS and Nucleo boards
  • Magnetic Field Mapper (MFM) calibration tool, as GUI and SDK

The suite comes with complete documentation and you can always access our technical support staff.
