Fizoptika has expanded its line of FOG (fiber optic gyro)-based sensors for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and robotics with a new 3-axis fiber optic gyroscope and inertial measurement unit (IMU). Both sensors feature ultra-compact and lightweight design, high-accuracy performance and minimal power consumption, making them ideal for space-constrained designs.
The G181 FOG sensor contains three Fizoptika VG1703-like fiber optic gyros mounted on a solid frame with a fully-integrated ADC board. Available in aluminium or μ-metal housing, it weighs just 160 grams, has a power consumption of 2W and features an input range of 300 °/s and ARW of 0.015 °/√h.
The U181 IMU combines three VG1703-like FOG sensors, three MEMS accelerometers and processing boards, with almost instant initialization. The unit is also available in aluminium or μ-metal housing. Weighing 200 grams with a power consumption of 1.5W, it features an input range of 300 °/s and ARW of 0.025 °/√h.
