Calibrated data

The MTi-1 is a self-contained inertial measurement unit (IMU) that provides calibrated data on the rate of turn, the acceleration and the magnetic field – all in 3D.

Robust and reliable

The MTi-1 calibrates for several biases and parameters, such as temperature. Robust and reliable, it integrates easily with high-volume applications. Best of all, it’s the most cost-effective product for surface mountable device (SMD) integration.
