The VN-100 Rugged is a miniature, high-performance IMU and Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS).Based on MEMS sensors, the VN-100 combines 3-axis accelerometers, 3-axis gyros, 3-axis magnetic sensors, a barometric pressure sensor as well as a 32-bit processor into a lightweight robust aluminum enclosure, computing and outputs a real-time, drift free 3D orientation solution that is continuous over the complete 360 degrees of motion. The aluminum enclosure package design of the VN-100 Rugged allows for easy integration into your application and provides protection from board stresses and hazards due to harsh environmental conditions.
