LPMS-USBAL: 9-Axis IMU / AHRS / Motion Sensor with USB Connectivity and Rugged Housing


The LP-Research Motion Sensor LPMS-USBAL is an inertial measurement unit (IMU) / attitude and heading reference system (AHRS) with rugged housing. The unit is very versatile, performing accurate, high speed orientation and displacement measurements. By the use of three different MEMS sensors (3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis magnetometer) drift-free, high-speed orientation data around all three axes is achieved. The optional temperature and barometric pressure sensors allow accurate altitude measurements. The LPMS-USBAL can be connected to a host system either via a USB port. Data transfer rates of up to 400Hz.
