ML5-AR Industrial Tilt & Angular Rate Sensor, IP68/69K package
The LORD Sensing ML5-AR, Attitude Reference, delivers low-cost precision measurements of dynamic inclination, acceleration and angular rate in challenging environments specifically designed for those encountered by heavy-duty construction, off-highway, agriculture, mining and trucking industries.
The ML5-AR utilizes the power of a sophisticated Auto-Adaptive Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) to remove errors associated with vibration, sudden linear motions and quake, resulting in a true reading of inclination under all conditions.
State-of-the-art temperature compensation and calibration assures error-free performance over the full operational temperature range.
The compact size, wide 4.5 to 36 V power range, IP68/IP69K rating and CAN J1939 or CANopen communications interface make the ML5-AR a single part solution for a full range of vehicle sizes and applications.
