The robust inclination sensors of the SMX.igs-e series offer the functionality of an inertial measurement unit (IMU). Acceleration and rotational velocity are measured in all 3 spatial axes. The sensors also provide inclination values in the range of 360° or +/- 90° in one or two dimensions.
To improve the stability of the measured values, various configurable filter algorithms are included in the sensor. In addition to the classic low-pass filters such as Butterworth and "critically damped", a Kalman filter can also be activated for dynamic applications. The sensor transmits the measurement data to the control system via a CANopen or SAE J1939 interface.
The STW toolchain openSYDE includes support for these sensors, which enables rapid and convenient integration of the sensor into both existing and new applications. Preconfigured projects and dashboards in openSYDE ensure fast and straightforward commissioning.
