Autumn has officially arrived in New York City. The days are now much more crisp and the countdown begins to the Christmas tree selection here at Rockefeller Center; quickly it will become the holiday season! Enter the month of October, and we are featuring a great and highly reliable IMU.
The LN-200 is a versatile, light weight, super reliable, advanced, fiber-optic, all-altitude, strap down Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). If that was not enough, it comes in an ultra-small size. The LN-200 has 3 solid-state fiber-optic gyros and 3 solid-state silicon MEMS accelerometers in a very small package that measures velocity and angle changes in a coordinate system fixed relative to its case. Digital output data of incremental velocity and incremental angle are provided to the user over a digital serial data bus. This inertial fiber optic gyro is hermetically sealed and contains no moving parts, ensuring low noise, long usage and shelf life.
The LN-200 is available in 0.5, 1.0 and 3.0 deg/hr gyro bias classes of performance.
The LN-200 can be installed with variations of software, including:
- Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS)
- Motion Compensation
- Electro-optical/FLIR / Camera / Radar Stabilization
- Fly-By-Wire (FBW) Flight Controls
- ACMI/TSPI (Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation/ Time, Space, Position)
