Inertial Labs Kernel-220 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) uses MEMS sensor technology

The Inertial Labs Kernel-110, 120, 210 and 220 sensors represent a set of compact, self-contained strapdown industrial-grade (100-series) and tactical-grade (200-series) Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) that measure linear acceleration and angular rates with three-axis MEMS accelerometers and three-axis MEMS gyroscopes.

Fully calibrated, temperature compensated, mathematically aligned to an orthogonal coordinate system, the Kernel-210 and 220 contain a 1 deg/hr bias in-run stability gyroscopes and 0.005 mg bias in-run stability accelerometers. The new Kernel 110,120 IMUs will be superseding Inertial Labs existing Kernel-100 IMU, whereas the Kernel 210,220 are a miniaturised version of the IMU-P Tactical unit.

The Kernel series of inertial measurement units are a fully integrated inertial device which combines the newest MEMS sensors technology. This seamless integration allows Inertial Labs to provide an inertial system with top-of-the line performance. With its compact design and low power consumption, the Kernel IMUs easily integrate in a wide range of higher order systems while consuming very little space and power.

With continuous Built-in Test (BIT), configurable communications protocols, electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection and flexible input power requirements, the Kernel-110, 120, 210 and 220 are built to be used in a wide variety of environments and integrated system applications. Units have been thoroughly tested to perform in large variations in temperature, high vibration and shock. Designed to be used in air, marine and land environments, the Kernel series can be integrated into Motion Reference Units (MRU), Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (AHRS), and GPS-Aided Inertial Navigation Systems (INS). As a result, the Kernel IMUs are ideal for a wide variety of applications such as autonomous vehicles, antenna and line of sight stabilisation systems, as well as buoy or boat motion monitoring.

“The new Kernel IMUs represent the innovative approach at Inertial Labs,” said Jamie Marraccini, President & CEO of Inertial Labs, “the high performance and flexibility to integrate into different systems and applications is what we have striven to provide to our clients with the new Kernel IMU release.”
