Angular Rate Gyro Sensor (ARS, ARS-12B)

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer holidays! This month’s special will help to ensure your projects are on the right track and don’t spin out of control.

We are featuring a solid-state angular rate gyro.

These angular rate gyros have no moving parts, no detectable hysteresis, quick startup, and are low cost since the gyro is electronic rather than mechanical. There is no significant hysteresis or threshold in the angular rate gyro since there is no rotating mass or friction. Resolution is system noise limited to 15mV RMS maximum at 50 Hz bandwidth. The effects of external noise on the gyro are minimized with the unique “tuning fork” design that responds to rotational motion and rejects linear motion associated with vibration.┬áThe absence of moving parts gives the angular rate gyro sensor its durability and long life.

Multiple axis, custom power and special performance specification versions of this sensor are also available.

Don’t forget to come say hello to us at the JEC Americas 2013 conference and trade show – booth D25, Boston, Massachusetts, October 2,3,4.
