IMU-P Industrial

IMU-P Industrial by Inertial Labs, is a new generation Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) of compact size (39 x 45 x 22 mm), low weight (70 gram) and high performance.


  • Description
  • Specifications


IMU-P Industrial by Inertial Labs, is an advanced MEMS sensors based, compact, self-contained strapdown, tactical grade Inertial Measurement Systems and Digital Tilt Sensor. It measures linear accelerations, angular rates, Pitch & Roll with three-axis high-grade MEMS accelerometers and three-axis tactical grade MEMS gyroscopes. Angular rates and accelerations are determined with high accuracy for both motionless and dynamic applications.

The IMU-P Industrial is a breakthrough, fully-integrated inertial solution that combines the latest MEMS sensors technology.

Fully calibrated, temperature compensated, mathematically aligned to an orthogonal coordinate system, IMU demonstrates less than 1 deg/hr gyroscopes and 0.005 mg accelerometers bias in-run stability with very low noise and high reliability.

Continuous Built-in Test (BIT), configurable communications protocols, electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection, and flexible input power requirements make the Inertial Labs IMU-P easy to use in a wide range of higher order integrated system applications.

The IMU-P Industrial is factory fully-calibrated and compensated over its operating temperature range.

IMU-P Industrial is a cost-effective, ITAR-free solution for systems that only had FOG’s as an alternative when reaching for the performance level that IMU-P offers.
