Announcing the new G-Link-200 wireless accelerometer sensor

The new G-Link-200-8G is a ruggedized high-speed triaxial accelerometer node for real-time data acquisition and machine health monitoring of high-value assets.

Used to measure motion, vibration, acceleration/deceleration, tilt and impact events, this latest wireless solution has an on-board tri-axial accelerometer for high-resolution data acquisition with extremely low noise and drift. Additionally, the G-Link-200 can report derived vibration parameters such as velocity (IPS), allowing for long-term machine health monitoring.

Product Highlights:
∙ On-board triaxial accelerometer with +/- 2, +/- 4 or +/- 8 g measurement range
∙ Continuous, periodic burst and event-triggered sampling
∙ Output acceleration or derived vibration parameters (Vrms, Arms, App, Crest Factor)
∙ LXRS protocol allows lossless data collection, scalable networks and node synchronization of ±50 μs.
∙ 1 Sample per hour to 4096 Samples per second
∙ Ruggedized IP-67 rated enclosure

Announcing the new GX5-25 AHRS Inertial Sensor

We are proud to announce the launch of the next in our line of innovative GX5 inertial sensors—the GX5-25 AHRS sensor.

The latest generation of this award-winning inertial sensor is the best in its class for measuring attitude (pitch, roll and yaw) and heading in a variety of applications including platform stabilization, unmanned vehicle navigation and health/usage monitoring.

Best in Class Performance
∙ Bias tracking, error estimation, threshold flags and adaptive noise modeling allow for fine tuning to conditions in each application
∙ Accelerometer noise as low as 25 ug/√Hz
∙ Smallest and lightest industrial AHRS with Adaptive Kalman Filter available

Ease of Use
∙ Automatic magnetometer calibration and anomaly rejection eliminates the need for field calibration
∙ Automatically compensates for vehicle noise and vibration
∙ Easy integration via comprehensive and fully backwards-compatible communication protocol
∙ Common protocol between 3DM-GX3, GX4, RQ1, GQ4 and GX5 inertial sensor families for easy migration
