OxTS Releases Compact GNSS/INS Board Set

Published: 06 Oct 2014

xOEM500 is a high performance GNSS/INS

OxTS has announced the latest addition to the OEM line of inertial navigation systems aimed at system integrators. The xOEM500 is a high performance GNSS/INS embedded on a single, compact board set and marks OxTS’ smallest, lightest INS offering to date.

The xOEM500 manages to pack a lot of features into its compact form factor. It includes dual GNSS receivers capable of 50 cm position and giving stable heading performance in all conditions. The IMU is made up of MEMS based accelerometers and gyros, but thanks to OxTS’ custom calibration techniques including the SuperCAL™ adjustment, the sensors are pushed to the limits to deliver the tactical grade performance in an industrial sized package.

In addition to the GNSS and IMU, the board set includes 4 GB of storage for over 4 days’ worth of data and an on-board processor running the strapdown navigator and Kalman Filter. Data is output at up to 100 Hz in real-time and logged internally so it can be post-processed with the OxTS NAVsuite software package, included free with the system.

The xOEM500 also features OxTS gx/ix™ technology; advanced GNSS and inertial processing technology that integrates the raw GNSS data directly with the inertial system to generate a solution tailored to the Kalman Filter. The gx/ix tight coupling means the xOEM500 maintains accuracy in urban and other harsh GNSS environments.

Designed for system integrators who require precise position and orientation measurements in a compact form factor, the xOEM500 offers exceptional price/performance with competitive pricing and volume discounts available.
