Inertial Labs has expanded its Kernel series of compact strapdown inertial measurement units (IMUs) with four new models. The industrial-grade 100-series and tactical-grade 200-series measure linear acceleration and angular rates with three-axis MEMS accelerometers and three-axis MEMS gyroscopes, and are ideal for unmanned systems operating in the land, sea and air domains.
Fully calibrated, temperature compensated, and mathematically aligned to an orthogonal coordinate system, the Kernel-210 and 220 contain a 1 deg/hr bias in-run stability gyroscopes and 0.005 mg bias in-run stability accelerometers. The new Kernel-110 and 120 IMUs will be superseding Inertial Labs’ existing Kernel-100 IMU, whereas the Kernel-210 and 220 are miniaturized versions of the company’s IMU-P tactical-grade sensor.
The Kernel series IMUs are fully integrated inertial solutions that integrate the newest MEMS sensor technology. With compact design and low power consumption, the Kernel IMUs easily integrate into a wide range of higher order systems while consuming very little space and power.
With continuous Built-in Test (BIT), configurable communications protocols, electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection, and flexible input power requirements, the new Kernel IMUs are built to be used in a wide variety of environments and integrated system applications. Units have been thoroughly tested to perform in large variations in temperature, high vibration, and shock. The Kernel series can be integrated into Motion Reference Units (MRU), Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (AHRS), and GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation Systems (INS), and are ideal for a wide variety of applications such as autonomous vehicles, antenna and line of sight stabilizations systems, and vessel motion monitoring.
Jamie Marraccini, President & CEO of Inertial Labs, commented: “The new Kernel IMUs represent the innovative approach at Inertial Labs. High performance and the flexibility to integrate into different systems and applications is what we have striven to provide to our clients with the new Kernel IMU release.”
