Calibrated data

The MTi-2 is a self-contained vertical reference unit (VRU) featuring sensors that provide calibrated data on the rate of turn, the acceleration, and the magnetic field – all in 3D.

Sensor fusion algorithm

A sensor fusion algorithm computes 3D orientation data based on a gravity reference frame: drift-free roll, pitch, and accurate, unreferenced yaw.

Free to download MT Software Suite

The MT Software Suite gives you easy access to the MTi-2 and contains a specially developed, easy-to-use graphical user interface, as well as drivers for various operating systems. It also offers many other useful tools, for example source code and documentation.


The suite comes with complete documentation. Of course, you can also always contact our technical support staff if you have questions.

The MT Software Suite includes different software programs, such as: 

MT Manager (GUI) MT Manager (GUI)

This provides you with easy access to all the functions of your MTi from the comfort of your office. MT Manager enables recording and playback of data, real-time data viewing, including graphs, and easy configuration of settings.
