With the newly developed Inertial Measurement Units, sometimes abbreviated as IMU, navigation with high precision is possible. This is of particular importance for many different applications. In addition to precise navigation, error tolerance also plays a role. This is minimal with the IIM-46234 and IIM-46230 Inertial Measurement Units. This is why these units are also suitable for applications that require particularly high accuracy.
Precise IMUs are needed in many industries
The IIM-46230 and IIM-46230 are used in autonomous machines and vehicles. Autonomous driving of road vehicles is currently still in its infancy. However, some systems have already established themselves in agriculture as well as in construction. In agriculture, there are already machines that can fertilize or harvest autonomously. There are already combine harvesters where the driver is only required for safety reasons. The same also applies to construction machinery. These, too, are already operating autonomously. Accuracies in the navigation range of less than one centimeter are achieved.
However, the IIM-46234 and IIM-46230 Inertial Measurement Units work with even greater precision. This is why they can be used without any problems to control industrial robots and autonomously operating systems.
Special features of the IMU IIM-46234 and IIM-46230
The two IMUs operate with multiple six-axis sensors. Each individual sensor can measure linear acceleration in three dimensions. In addition, rotational speeds can also be measured in three dimensions. This is the reason for the high precision.
Another special feature is that the IMU can operate in a wide temperature range from -40 degrees Celsius to +85 degrees Celsius. Conventional components of this type sometimes have greater tolerances at different temperatures. This is different with the Inertial Measurement Units of the IIM series. These achieve consistently high precision over the entire temperature range. This is why they can also be used under harsh conditions without any problems. The industry has been waiting for this for a long time.
Unlike many other modules of this type, the IIM-46234 and IIM-46230 Inertial Measurement Units contain microcontrollers. These are capable of establishing connections to numerous other sensors. They also offer various communication options. Therefore, these modern modules can be used very well for controlling drones.
IMU for the future
There are still some special features that will be interesting for the future use of Inertial Measurement Units now. Of particular interest to all users is the SensorFT function. This is a high level automatic error detection function. This can be used to draw attention to maintenance. In addition, the user is warned in good time if errors become apparent in the system. This function can be used to avoid operational downtimes. This saves time and money.
Another feature is TK’s integrated recovery software. If a software error cannot be easily recovered, the automatic recovery function can be activated. This is a very practical solution. As a result, the user of the IIM-46234 and IIM-46230 Inertial Measurement Units is also on the safe side in the future and can carry out work with precise navigation technology.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
