Xsens introduces new rugged MTi modules for harsh environments
19th May 2021
Today we introduce two new products to our MTi™ 600-series. We have extended the choice of rugged MTi's with and without an integrated GNSS satellite positioning receiver.
Meet the new GNSS/INS module, the MTi-670G, and the new rugged AHRS, the MTi-630R. The complete MTi 600-series lineup offers products that are capable of meeting a broad range of application requirements at competitive prices. The new rugged products are particularly well suited to use in harsh environments in maritime, mining, agriculture and many other applications.
Boele de Bie, Xsens’ CEO, said: ‘The latest members of the MTi 600-series are the fruit of Xsens’ continued investment in product development and new technology, ensuring that we provide the combination of performance, features and value that our customers demand across the range of markets we serve, from high-volume mainstream electronics to highly specialized product designs including RTK.’
Rugged housing to withstand harsh environments
The MTi-670G and MTi-630R are housed in an IP68-rated aluminum enclosure which measures 40.9mm x 56.5mm x 36.8mm, and is high vibration- and shock-proof. Both modules feature standard CAN and RS232 interfaces and an output data rate of up to 400Hz.
The new MTi-670G include a high-performance ZED F9 GNSS receiver by u-blox. Xsens' renowned sensor fusion firmware provides absolute positioning accuracy of better than ±1m. The sensor is easy to integrate into system designs thanks to its support for Xbus and standard NMEA and CAN protocols.
The MTi-630R AHRS gives you roll/pitch measurement accuracy of ±0.2°, and heading accuracy of ±1°. It is also easy to integrate into end product designs thanks to the MT Software Suite, which also includes drivers for the LabVIEW, ROS and GO development languages.
All modules in the MTi 600-series offer high-performance features:
Precise factory calibration of MTI
High immunity to magnetic interference
Adaptive firmware operation to optimize performance in various types of applications
Out-of-the-box operation with Xsens’ popular MTi development (DK) or starter kits (SK)
The MTi-670G and MTi-630R are available for sampling now. Ruggedized versions of the MTi-610 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and MTi-620 Vertical Reference Unit (VRU), the MTi-610R and MTi-620R, are available on request.
