ARW Noise of 0.002°/sec/√Hz and In-Run Bias of 4°/hour Available

 

November 7, 2013 Gladiator Technologies announced today release of their improved G200 Dual Axis Gyro. This enhanced model builds upon the successful heritage of the company's predecessor gyros including the G50Z and G100Z. The analog output X and Y axis gyro offers a small form factor, low power consumption with exceptional performance in a durable package to perform even in the most rugged environments.

The G200 is the latest addition to our family of analog output gyros and accelerometers offering best-in-class noise and bias with exceptional performance over temperature and low misalignment and g-sensitivity. The G200 dual axis gyro has many advanced performance features including:


•        Ultra Low Gyro Noise 0.002°/sec/√Hz
•        Short Term Gyro Bias 4°/hour 1σ
•        Bias Over Temperature ≤ 0.1°/sec 1σ
•        Axis misalignment < 4mrad 1σ
•        G-Sensitivity <0.005°/sec/g 1σ
•        Ultra Low Power < 10 mA typical
•        Bipolar Output Signal
•        Light Weight 18 grams
•        Low Voltage +5V (single sided power)
•        Bandwidth 200Hz
•        Environmentally Sealed
•        Voltage Output
•        Internal Temperature Sensor
•        Self Test
•        Shock Resistant 500g
•        Vibration 6gRMS
•        High MTBF
•        Export ECCN 7A994 (NLR)
•        Link to datasheet, data & images

 

Gladiator's CEO, Mark Chamberlain, remarked, "Gladiator Technologies’ high performance and ultra-low noise gyros offer exceptional bias over temperature performance with rugged durability. The improved G200 enables dual axis on-gimbal pitch and roll stabilization in very small applications with demanding environmental and performance requirements. In addition, it has a simple analog output.” Chamberlain added, "The G200 is the latest in a series of new high performance ultra-low noise MEMS products that we will soon bring to market early next year. We are excited about our emerging technology and products and to be a leader in the high performance MEMS inertial market."

Gladiator uses state-of-the-art design tools and manufacturing processes including fully automated environmental and temperature testing and proprietary calibration methods for environmental performance optimization. A comprehensive ERP system combined with lean manufacturing and six sigma techniques has enabled high volume production at low cost and high quality. Gladiator's quality system is certified to AS9100C/ISO9001:2008.
