Silicon Sensing introduces a new 9 DoF inertial measurement unit

By GeoConnexion - 29th April 2021 - 07:57

Silicon Sensing Systems has launched a new 9 degrees of freedom (DoF) inertial measurement unit (IMU) which extends the performance of its predecessor, the DMU30, whist delivering a dramatic reduction in volume, weight and power consumption. At only 50x50x50mm, and weighing just 200g, the new DMU41 represents a 54% reduction in volume and a 42% reduction in weight over the DMU30. In addition, it has a power consumption 50% lower than DMU30’s typical usage. With these remarkable decreases in scale and power consumption the DMU41 brings ultra-precise motion sensing to far smaller and more restricted platforms and applications whilst delivering performance that competes directly with far heavier, larger and more costly, fibre optic gyro-based units.
