Carrières-sur-Seine, France, February 2nd 2018 – SBG Systems releases at the International LiDAR Mapping Forum the Ellipse 2 Micro Series, a new product range reducing size and cost of high performance inertial sensors for volume projects. Ellipse 2 Micro Series is available as an IMU, or as an AHRS or INS running an Extended Kalman Filter.
Meet us at stand #405 to discover our new product development! “With the Ellipse 2 Micro, integrators benefit from SBG Systems high expertise in motion sensing and positioning in the smallest package” adds Alexis Guinamard, CTO of SBG Systems. The new Ellipse 2 Micro is available as an IMU for calibrated sensor data, or as an AHRS/INS delivering accurate orientation and navigation using an external GNSS receiver.
High Quality Micro IMU Calibrated from -40° to 85°C
Combining state-of-the-art MEMS-based gyroscopes, accelerometers, and magnetometers, the new Ellipse 2 Micro Series is establishing new standards in micro MEMS IMU accuracy and reliability. Following the extensive SBG production process, the Ellipse 2 Micro Series is fully calibrated in temperature to eliminate measurement errors such as sensor bias, gain, linearity, alignment, and g-sensitivity to provide a constant behavior in all conditions. The high-quality Ellipse 2 Micro benefits from a 2-year warranty.
10 years of Filtering Embedded in the 10-gram Ellipse2 Micro
SBG Systems has been manufacturing inertial sensors for more than 10 years and is especially recognized for the added value of the embedded algorithms. The R&D team has been adjusting motion profiles to platforms (UAV, car, vessels, etc.) and specific conditions (vibrations, high dynamics, low motion, etc.) to reach the highest reliability. Weighting only 10 grams, the Ellipse 2 Micro benefit from this high expertise to provide a 0.1° accurate attitude and connects to external GNSS for navigation, offering a remarkable weight/performance ratio to integrators.
Relying on the Ellipse 2 Micro When You Cannot Rely on GNSS
Ellipse 2 Micro Series provides excellent navigation data when connected to an external GNSS receiver. The cost-effective Ellipse2 Micro INS fuses in real-time inertial and GNSS information to maintain the vehicle position in air, marine, or in land applications. For automotive projects, the inertial sensor comes with CAN protocol and connects to odometer for an even higher performance in harsh environments (tunnel, urban canyons, etc.).
