Gladiator Technologies has launched a new three-axis digital MEMS accelerometer featuring high dynamic range and ultra-low noise sensors. The A300D is ideal for precision measurement applications such as UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and robotic systems.
With a volume of 0.6 cubic inches and weighing just 19.25 grams, the low-SWaP (size, weight and power) accelerometer provides significant performance capabilities including a ±40g sensor range, VRW of 0.058 mg/ √Hz, and a bias over temperature of 0.5mg. Each unit is factory calibrated over temperature, conditioned to repeatedly perform over demanding environments, and enabled with VELOX high speed processing, which enables increased data outputs, increased filtering options, and extremely low latency.
The A300D is the latest addition to Gladiator Technologies’ SX2 inertial sensor line, which also includes the G300D Triaxial Gyroscope, LandMark 005 IMU, and the LandMark 007 and LandMark 007X IMUs.
Kyle Hess, senior engineer at Gladiator Technologies, commented: “We are extremely pleased with the low noise performance of the A300D. This accelerometer has exceeded our initial development objectives and as a three-axis digital accelerometer modelled over temperature, it stands out as a unique product for precision inertial measurement applications.”
Eric Yates, Vice President of Business Development at Gladiator Technologies, said: “The addition of the A300D further expands our SX2 inertial product line by providing a high performance, cost effective, three-axis digital accelerometer. As a manufacturer of MEMS accelerometers, IMUs, gyroscopes, inertial navigation and utility guidance solutions, Gladiator Technologies continues to push the boundaries of inertial performance throughout a wide range of inertial products.”
