LPMS-USBAL2 Rugged USB Inertial Measurement Unit
  • LPMS-USBAL2 Rugged USB Inertial Measurement Unit


Quick Overview

LPMS-USBAL2: 9-Axis IMU/AHRS/Motion Sensor with USB output in an Aluminium housing. Accelerometer: 3 axes, ±20/±40/±80/±160m/s² (16 bits); Gyroscope: 3 axes, ±125/±245/±500/±1000/±2000°/s (16 bits); Magnetometer: 3 axes, ±4/±8/±12/±16 gauss (16 bits); Barometric Pressure: 300 to 1100hPa. Data output format: Raw Data; Euler Angle; Quaternion @ up to 400Hz. Power supply 5vDC. Dimensions: 40 x 34 x 17mm, weight: 36g. The LPMS-USBAL2 includes a micro USB port for USB 2.0 output. Units supplied with Micro USB cable, User guide card and 1 year warranty. Software: C++ library for windows, Java library for Android, LpmsControl software and Open Motion Analysis Toolkit (OpenMAT) for windows.


The LPMS-USBAL2 is a high performance motion sensor in a rugged Aluminium housing with a micro USB-B port. 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) for drift-free, high-speed orientation data around all three axes is achieved. Integrated temperature and barometric pressure sensors allow accurate altitude measurements. The LPMS-USBAL2 can be connected to a host system either via a micro USB, type B, connection. High data transfer rates allow sampling rates of up to 400Hz are possible. The widely used USB interface provides data communication allowing the LPMS-USBAL2 to suit both machine and human motion measurements allowing sensors to be connected directly to a PC, laptop or central control unit.
