Revolution AV includes a full suite of precision, 3-axis, MEMS rotation rate, acceleration, and magnetic sensors and a dual-axis electrolytic tilt sensor. All 11 sensor measurements are calibrated over a -50° to 110°C temperature range and aligned in three dimensions. In addition to azimuth output, all raw and calibrated measurements are available at up to 28 readings per second.

Sensor Measurements

  • Heading (Orientation)
  • Roll and Pitch (Orientation)

Measurement Specifications
Tilt Accuracy (static): < 0.2° Pitch & Roll (dynamic): < 1° for rates < 150°/sec Heading Accuracy (static): < 0.5° Heading (dynamic): < 3° for rates < 150°/sec Pitch & Roll Range: +-40° Dip angle range: +-80°Rate: 28 readings/sec

Notes, Considerations & Recommendations

Rate gyros and eTilt sensors can be removed to reduce cost.
