MTi-100 IMU


The MTi-100 is our highest-performing Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). It provides calibrated data on the 3D rate of turn, 3D acceleration and 3D magnetic field. The superior, vibration-rejecting gyroscopes – part of the entire MTi 100-series – guarantee high-quality acceleration and orientation data, even in challenging environments. The MTi-100 is ruggedly built, with a protective, anodized, IP67 waterproof aluminum housing, waterproof connectors, and special studs for easy mounting and aligning. This all-in-one IMU supports optimized temperature calibration, while offering configurable output settings for synchronization with any third-party device. Like the other modules in this series, the MTi-100 can be recognized by its dark-grey/black base plate and the small barometer holes on one side of the casing.

The MTi-100 is MIL-STD 202 certified (Vibration).
