New: The Gyroscope and Inclination Sensor NGS2

Kaufbeuren, (PresseBox) - Sensor-Technik Wiedemann GmbH (STW) designed the NGS2 gyroscope sensor especially for mobile work machines and off-highway vehicles. The robust housing makes the NGS2 suitable for the harsh conditions associated with these applications. The NGS2 can also be utilized as an inclination sensor, as both sensor types can be integrated into a single device.

As a gyroscope sensor the 3dB bandwidth is 40Hz. In the standard unit, the measuring range is set to 50 /s. The achievable resolution is 0.25 /s. In addition to the gyro sensor, an optional accelerometer can be included. The inclination can be determined from the accelerometer, and the acceleration values can also be read. The output data are available over a CANopen interface. Optionally, analogue outputs can be added to provide one output signal per axis.

The sensor has a diagnostics function and the offset can be re-calibrated via the CAN Bus. The power supply is suitable for 9...36VDC and so covers12V and 24V vehicles. Maximum operating temperature is between range is -40...+85 C.
