Gladiator Technologies announced their next release in their high performance LandMarkTM 50 product family, the LandMark™ 50 Vertical Gyro (VG). This new VG builds upon the successful heritage of the company’s low noise LandMarkTM VG product families, including the LandMark™ 10, 20, 21, 22, 30 and 40. The VG is form, fit and function interchangeable with the LandMark™ 30 VG, yet offers substantial improvement in performance utilizing their newest high performance MEMS gyros and accelerometers.
All the LandMark™ VG’s use only gyros and accelerometers to accurately calculate pitch and roll angles with no other sensor inputs required. The unit also can accommodate a wide input power range from +6V to +36V. All our VG’s share a common VG messaging protocol for a “common cockpit” approach enabling users the option to choose the VG performance, size, weight and price that best suits their application without having to rewrite any VG interface software. This latest addition to our family of VG’s offers exceptional pitch and roll angle output accuracy as well as ultra-low noise and bias while including the other feature-rich advantages of its predecessor VG’s. The LandMark™ 50 features robust environmental sealing for EMI protection as well as user selectable RS485 data rates of 100Hz (4 KHz internal sampling rate).
The LandMark™ 50 VG has many advanced performance features including:
Pitch & Roll Angles ±0.25° typical
Wide Input Voltage Range +6V to +36V
Low Gyro Noise 0.001°/sec/√Hz (0.042°/√Hour)
Low Accel Noise 0.025mg/√Hz
In-Run Gyro Bias 1°/hour 1 σ
