Honeywell HG1171 Series 6DF IMU sensors

provide key data for automated steering, stability, and vehicle controls in a number of potential agricultural, construction, and material handling equipment applications. They enhance safety, stability, productivity, and operational capabilities of heavy-duty vehicle equipment, company says.
The Series uses MEMS (Micro Electromechanical Machined Sensors) technology, already used in aerospace applications for navigation and control, where users need enhanced performance in sensing rotation rate and acceleration. The Honeywell HG1171 Series of discrete sensors features enhanced fault monitoring and reporting to verify correct operation.
Integration of the microcontroller, sensors, and communication interfaces permits software customization, which can save development time and money. Features of the


sensors include a high-speed CANbus, enhanced temperature performance, low noise, and high resolution, packaged in a tough metal housing that is suitable for most harsh environments.
