Hoskin Scientific Ltd and Microstrain actively support the York University Space Engineering Design Laboratory and recently donated a Microstrain 3DM-GX1 Attitude Heading Reference System.

3DM-GX1® combines three angular rate gyros with three orthogonal DC accelerometers, three orthogonal magnetometers, multiplexer, 16 bit A/D converter, and embedded microcontroller, to output its orientation in dynamic and static environments.

Operating over the full 360 degrees of angular motion on all three axes, 3DM-GX1® provides orientation in matrix, quaternion and Euler formats. The digital serial output can also provide temperature compensated, calibrated data from all nine orthogonal sensors at update rates of 350 Hz.

Features and Benefits:

  • On-board processing/filtering of accelerometer, gyro and magnetometer outputs
  • Fully temperature compensated
  • Calibrated for sensor misalignment and gyro G-sensitivity
  • Supports hard iron field calibration
  • Outputs Euler angles, quaternions and orientation matrix
  • RS-232, RS-485 and analog output options
  • Small, lightweight and low power
