LPMS-CU 9-Axis IMU AHRS Motion Sensor with CANbus and USB Connectivity

1 Week Del.

Quick Overview

The LPMS-CU Motion Sensor is a miniature inertial measurement unit (IMU) and attitude and heading reference system (AHRS). The unit uses triple axis accelerometer, gyro and magnetomer sensors and an integral Kalman filter to provide full orientation data in CAN BUS format via RS232 or USB serial connection as Quaternion or Euler angles, and also provides raw sensor measurements for x,y,z acceleration, pitch, roll yaw rate of turn and magnetometer data. The LPMS-CU is ideal for many applications such as human motion monitoring, machine monitoring and robot / UAV INS / AHRS applications.

The LPMS-CU Motion Sensor CAN bus and USB version is a miniature inertial measurement unit (IMU) and attitude and heading reference system (AHRS). 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 included temperature and barometric pressure sensors allow accurate height measurements. The LPMS-CU can be connected to a host system either via a CAN bus, or USB connection. High data transfer rates allow sampling rates of up to 500 Hz. The LPMS-CU fits both machine and human motion measurements for size and cost sensitive applications.
