|SMC has developed its IMU
range of Motion Sensors to meet the requirements of the
marine sector. The IMU range provides high accuracy motion
measurement data in dynamic environment in all areas from
small hydrographic vessels to large oil rigs in all weather
The SMC IMU uses solid state gyros and accelerometers to
provide real time motion measurements with high dynamic
accuracy even during accelerations. State of the art design,
construction and assembly produce an IMU with an extremely
high reliability in the most demanding marine environment.
Every SMC motion sensor is individually calibrated and
tested for roll, pitch & heave as well as all directions of
acceleration, inside a calibration machine with a controlled
temperature environment between 0 and +65 degrees Celsius.
- Roll & Pitch 0.03° (RMS) Dynamic Accuracy @ ±5° amplitude
- Heave 5 cm or 5 %
- Accelerations / Velocities
- Velocity Input Formats RMC, RMA, VTG, VBV, VHW
- Heading Input Formats NMEA 0183, HDT, HDG
- Various Industry Protocols NMEA
- 2 years warranty
The SMC IMU is supplied with a data distribution unit,
cables and windows based software for ease of set up and
configuration. The setup software enables the user to
configure the IMU parameters and makes the installation.
The SMC IMU is available with IP66 rating as default and
with depth rating as an option.
