How to Migrate to our new 3DM-GX5 Inertial Sensor from the 3DM-GX4

The 3DM-GX5 is the latest generation of the very popular 3DM-GX series of IMU, VG, AHRS and GPS/GNSS-INS. This is truly a “drop-in” replacement for the previous-generation GX4 inertial sensors, making it extremely simple to upgrade. However there are a few key performance and API improvements that you should know about to extract the best performance from the GX5 series.

There are several critical, performance-related differences between the GX4 and GX5 inertial sensors. If you have an application that is directly impacted by any of these performance areas, you should be aware of how the performance difference may affect your application. more

Product HiLite: Load Cells for High-Strength Conveyor Belts

Whether a mine produces coal, iron ore, copper or gold, it begins as a pile of rock which must be processed. Removing tons and tons of raw, ore-laden rock from a mine deep in the earth is a huge undertaking, but that’s only part of the story. After it has been mined, moving the ore to where it can be loaded into trucks or railcars for transportation to processing facilities is just as challenging.

Our engineers designed a series of Model MIN830 1,000-lb load cells with a custom mounting plate to incorporate into the process. The load cell and the mounting plate were tested and factory-calibrated as an assembly, making drop-in installation quick and easy. These compression load cells provide 4-20mA output and are vibration and shock protected. more

LORD Sensing-MicroStrain Ranked Among Vermont’s Best Places to Work for Fifth Consecutive Year

We have been named one of Vermont’s Best Places to Work in 2017, marking the fifth straight year we have earned top honors in the statewide awards program.

The annual list of the Best Places to Work in Vermont was created by Vermont Business Magazine, the Vermont Chamber of Commerce, the Vermont Department of Economic Development, the Vermont Department of Labor, the Vermont State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management and the Best Companies Group.

We are one of only five large companies from across the state to receive the distinction for five consecutive years. more

Sending Support to our Vermont National Guard Colleague

LORD Sensing-MicroStrain Global Product Manager Chris Arnold (Captain - Vermont Air National Guard) is currently deployed overseas with his unit in support of Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve, working to defeat ISIS and increase regional stability in the Middle East.

To show our support of Chris and his unit, we sent a hefty care package shipment and gathered for a team photo.

Good luck, and come home safely, Chris!
