Honeywell introduces its 6DF Series Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), 6-D Motion Variant, designed to provide motion, position and navigational sensing from a durable single device over six degrees of freedom.

  • Six degrees of freedom achieved using MEMS (microelectromechanical system) technology
  • MEMS senses translational movement in three perpendicular axes (surge, heave, sway) and rotational movement about three perpendicular axes (roll, pitch, yaw)
  • Measures motion of the equipment onto which it is attached and delivers the data to the equipment’s control module using a CAN SAE J1939 communications protocol
  • Allows equipment operator to focus on other functions, enabling more precise control than can be achieved by using only the human eye, thus increasing safety, stability and productivity
  • Aluminum packaging, sealing, corrosion-resistance and chemical compatibility provide durability from harsh environments
  • Ensures accuracy through durable packaging, stability, temperature compensation, software filtering and design, and Six Sigma testing requirements
  • Housing features IP67 and 69k ratings
  • EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) and EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) ratings protect the device from environmental radio frequencies
  • Wide voltage range (7 to 32V) minimizes need for a voltage converter
  • Deutsch connector simplifies customer’s supply chain and reduces design complexity
  • Chemical compatibility minimizes OEM having to expose the device to substances
