All new RMCU delivers high accuracy orientation for both motionless and dynamic applications.
Paeonian Springs, VA: The new Inertial Labs RMCU utilizes three axes each of precision MEMS accelerometers, miniature Fluxgate magnetometers, and MEMS gyroscopes to provide accurate heading, pitch, and roll of the device under measure. Integration of the gyroscopes’ output provides high-frequency, real-time measurement of the device rotation about all three rotational axes. The accelerometers and Fluxgate magnetometers measure extremely accurate absolute orientation at RMCU initial alignment and provide ongoing corrections to gyroscopes during operation.
One of the critical elements to the success of the RMCU is its use of mini-Fluxgate Magnetometers, which have clear advantages over magneto-inductive or magneto-resistive alternatives. Fluxgate magnetometers have superior stability and repeatability in operation over time and temperature. Regarding sensitivity, fluxgate magnetometers increase sensitivity up to two orders of magnitude.
