The HG1700 Enhanced IMU is smaller than previous versions, with 20 per cent less volume. It maintains the existing mounting features and has better sensor accuracy and lower noise, resulting in improved performance. Building on an already proven industry standard, the HG1700 Enhanced IMU features upgraded gyroscope technology capable of providing exceptional navigational data.
The three ring laser gyroscopes, three quartz resonating beam accelerometers and associated electronics are all environmentally sealed in a rugged aluminium housing. The HG1700 also employs an external environmental ring isolator to filter unwanted sensor inputs.
Approximately 400,000 Honeywell’s IMUs are in use today.
