The LORD Sensing 3DM-GX5 family of high-performance, industrial-grade inertial sensors provides a wide range of triaxial inertial measurements and computed attitude and navigation solutions.

In all models, the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) includes direct measurement of acceleration and angular rate, and are fully temperature-compensated and calibrated over the operating temperature. The use of Micro- Electro- Mechanical System (MEMS) technology allows for highly accurate, small, lightweight devices.

The  LORD Sensing  MIP Monitor software can be used for device configuration, live data monitoring, and recording. Alternatively,  the MIP Data Communications Protocol is available for development of custom interfaces and easy OEM integration.
