Double Output Gyro Sensor offers Wide Sensing Range

(PresseBox) (Quickborn, ) Texim Europe provides the XV-3700CB, a high-sensitivity gyro-sensor from Epson Toyocom with a wide detection range that has been optimized as an input device for motion user interfaces. Sensing the motion of persons or objects more accurately requires that angular velocity be sensed over a wide range, from slow speeds to fast. Ordinary sensors, however, have not been able to simultaneously provide both a wide sensing range and good stability and noise characteristics.

The XV-3700CB retains the low noise level and outstanding bias stability of Epson Toyocom's current XV-3500CB and, on top of this, can accurately sense motion over a wide range by simultaneously outputting two modes, a high-speed mode (sensing range: +/- 1500 dps) with a nominal scale factor of 0.8 mV/dps and a low-speed mode (sensing range: +/- 300 dps) with a nominal scale factor of 3.624 mV/dps.

Used for analyzing human motion or as an input device for a motion user interface that accurately senses, for example, the attitude of a radio-controlled helicopter, the new gyro-sensor will help improve the performance of devices designed for motion sensing applications, such as controllers and 3D mice.
