Miniature inertial systems for stabilizing moving vehicular subsystems introduced by SBG
RUEIL-MALMAISON, France, 2 Oct. 2014. SBG Systems s.a.s. in Rueil-Malmaison, France, is introducing the Ellipse series of miniature inertial systems for stabilizing or orientating vehicular subsystems while the vehicle is moving.
These miniature but high performance sensors can be connected to SAASM receiver for accurate navigation and positioning even during GPS outages, company officials say. The devices are designed to replace the SBG IG-500 series.
This series of miniature inertial systems benefits from a design, sensors, capabilities, and algorithms. Weighing from 45 grams, Ellipse sensors are flexible.
The Ellipse-A model provides 3D orientation and heave. For navigation, you can connect your own GPS with the Ellipse-E, or use the internal one by choosing the Ellipse-N model. The Ellipse-D is a little larger because it integrates a Survey-grade L1/L2 GNSS receiver with two antennas for unmatched heading and position accuracy.
Ellipse sensors resist the effects of dust, water, and vibration. The series is IP68 and compliant with the MIL-STD-810 certification. For more information contact SBG Systems online at www.sbg-systems.com.
