IMU-ISA-100C™

The IMU-ISA-100C features Northrop-Grumman Litef GMBH’s proven inertial measurement technology offering exceptional performance when paired with a NovAtel SPAN receiver. The IMU-ISA-100C is a near navigation grade sensor containing fiber optic gyros and fully temperature compensated Micro Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) accelerometers. The IMU design offers compact size, low power consumption, and low weight and features an extensive set of built-in tests. The IMU-ISA-100C operates from 9-34 VDC and interfaces with NovAtel’s FlexPak6™ or ProPak6™ through a highly reliable IMU interface. IMU measurements are used by the SPAN receiver to compute a blended GNSS+INS position, velocity and attitude solution at rates up to 200 Hz.

Features

  • Low noise fiber optic gyros and MEMS accelerometers
  • 200 Hz data rate
  • SPAN INS functionality

Benefits

  • High performance IMU
  • MCommercially exportable
  • Easy integration with NovAtel’s SPAN capable GNSS+INS receivers
  • Ideal for aerial and hydrographic survey as well as industrial applications

IMU-IGM-A1™

NovAtel IMUThe IMU-IGM-A1 was developed for pairing with a SPAN enabled GNSS receiver. Incorporating a MEMS inertial sensor, the IMU-IGM-A1 delivers the smallest and lightest IMU enclosure in our SPAN product portfolio. The IMU-IGM-A1 can be configured from the factory as an integrated GNSS Inertial Navigation System (INS) or as a standalone IMU sensor for pairing with an existing NovAtel SPAN receiver. When configured as a standalone IMU, the IMU-IGM-A1 delivers a rugged product to build your SPAN application on.

Features

  • Regulated 10-30 VDC input
  • 200 Hz navigation solution and raw measurement output
  • Dedicated wheel sensor input

Benefits

  • Small, lightweight and rugged
  • Optimized for SPAN on OEM6® enclosures
