Xsens MTI-620 VRU

Xsens MTi-620 VRU

Manufacturer: | Categories: ,

The MTi-620 VRU is the highest standard in vertical reference units. Its sensors and sensor fusion algorithm measure roll, pitch, and (unreferenced) yaw. As a part of the MTi 600-series, this module is lightweight and robust as well as cost-effective and easy to integrate.



The MTi-620 VRU from Xsens is a vertical reference unit with a small form factor design for deep integration in your application. As a part of the MTi-600-series, this module is lightweight, robust, cost-effective and easy to integrate. It is also highly flexible, with native CAN support.

You can seamlessly integrate the MTi-620 in your application in two ways: either with the header facing down, directly mounted on a PCB, or as a standalone, with a flat cable for communication. It is also highly flexible, with native CAN support. The MTi-620 VRU comes as an industrial-grade, highly affordable MEMS-based orientation sensor with an integrated sensor fusion algorithm and an easy-to-use development kit.

The MT Software Suite is your key to working with the MTi-620. 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, example source code and documentation. Among its software programs, you will find:

  • 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
  • Development kit available


  • Small, IP51-rated VRU
  • 0.2 deg roll/pitch accuracy
  • Full Graphical User Interface (GUI) and Software Development Kit (SDK) available
