The LP-Research Motion Sensor LPMS-CANAL version 2 (new version of LPMS-CANAL) is an inertial measurement unit (IMU) / attitude and heading reference system (AHRS) with rugged and waterproof (IP67) housing. The unit is very versatile, performing accurate, high-speed orientation measurements. By the use of three separate MEMS sensors (3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis magnetometer) low-drift, low-latency orientation data around all three axes is achieved.
The unit contains a 32-bit digital signal processor capable of running all calculations on-board in real-time. For more information on our sensor fusion method please refer to the IMUcore description.
LPMS-CANAL2 features a CAN bus interface that allows connecting the sensor to a larger CAN infrastructure. The sensor supports a minimal CANopen implementation as well as a customizable sequential CAN message format. The amount of measurement data transmitted via CAN bus can be freely configured using the LPMS-Control software. Depending on transfer rate settings of the sensor, data rates of up to 400Hz can be achieved.
Please note that configuration via CAN bus from a Windows PC requires a PEAK CAN-USB interface, which is not included with the sensor.
