High-performance inertial measurement unit (IMU)
DS-GYRO3 is a high-performance Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) based Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). With its rugged housing and industry-standard communication protocols it is designed to meet the needs of various navigational applications.
The unit by itself sends standard inertial measurement data (Pitch, Roll, and Yaw), an additional magnetometer, and diagnostic information.
The device provides two data interfaces:
USB 3.0 type C for PC connection running DewesoftX data acquisition software.
CAN interface for 3rd-party integrations.
The DS-GYRO3 device is powered by the same USB cable.
By connecting the unit to a USB port of a PC running DewesoftX data acquisition software, the data can be displayed, processed, and stored in real-time. Additionally, the DewesoftX software calculates the unit orientation from built-in inertial sensors with an extended Kalman filter (EKF) algorithm.
DS-GYRO3 provides an update rate of 1800 Hz and is in general more accurate that the DS-GYRO1 device.
