The LORD Sensing MV5-AR brings a new level of precision to measurements of dynamic inclination, acceleration and angular rate in challenging environments such as those encountered by heavy-duty construction, off-highway, agriculture, and trucking industries.

The MV5-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. Its power and mounting flexibility make it a single-part solution for a variety of vehicle applications.

MIP Monitor


MIP Monitor is PC software specifically designed for our Inertial products.

Configure Inertial nodes, start sampling, and view data in real time.

MIP packets can also be viewed in their raw form to aid in development of custom software.



SensorConnect is the next generation in desktop sensing software.

From configuration of nodes and starting networks, to collecting and analyzing data in real-time, SensorConnect provides a modern, powerful experience with our Wireless, Inertial, and Displacement products.

Using our intelligent data collection and graphing algorithms, you are able to visualize massive amounts of data instantly, and then zoom in on points of interest just as fast.

Built in MathEngine functionality allows for both real-time and post-processed math, such as generating FFTs, averages, RMS, etc.


Free and open source API

The MicroStrain Communication Library (MSCL) makes it simple to write code that interacts with our Wireless, Inertial, and Displacement sensors.

MSCL is completely open source and hosted on GitHub under the MIT license.

Full documentation, example code, and a quick start guide are provided to help you get started.

Available for C++, Python, and .NET.
