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.

LORD Sensing's state-of-the-art temperature compensation and calibration assures error-free performance over the full operational temperature range.
