Xsens has launched a new MTi product portfolio for industrial applications such as antenna/camera stabilization and unmanned system control.

With the introduction of the 4th generation high-performance product line, MEMS-based motion trackers (IMU, VRU, AHRS and GPS/INS) now match the requirements in terms of accuracy and robustness for many applications previously depending on fiber-optic gyroscope (FOG) based solutions.

The new MTi product portfolio has seven distinctive models offering 3D orientation, 3D position, 3D velocity, 3D dynamic data and a range of interface options.

Its product portfolio consists of two product lines: the MTi 10-series and the MTi 100-series.

The MTi 10-series extends the technology of the previous generations of the MTi. The MTi 10-series improves orientation accuracy while under vibrations with at least a factor of 50.

The bandwidth of the accelerometers and gyroscopes has been increased by a factor of 15. Available products are the MTi-10 IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), the MTi-20 VRU (Vertical Reference Unit) and the MTi-30 AHRS (Attitude and Heading Reference System).

The MTi 100-series is a new high-performance product line incorporating state-of-the-art vibration rejecting gyroscopes and a powerful multicore processing unit running a new embedded sensor fusion core that goes beyond standard Kalman-filter-based solutions.

Available as MTi-100 IMU, MTi-200 VRU and MTi-300 AHRS, it is a drop-in alternative to the MTi 10-series when extra accuracy is required.

The MTi-100 series can serve as a cost-effective replacement unit for high-grade IMU's, making the end-product more economically viable.

As part of its testing regime, Xsens has integrated the MTi-G AHRS sensor with a range of products designed for installation on land, sea, and air platforms, including tactical (TACAIR) and rotary wing aircraft.
