MTi-620 VRU

About the MTi-620

The MTi-620 is the highest standard in Vertical Reference Units (VRUs). Its sensors and sensor fusion algorithm measure roll, pitch, and (unreferenced) yaw. As a part of the MTi 600-series, this module is lightweight and robust as well as cost-effective and easy to integrate. You can seamlessly integrate the MTi-620 in your application in two ways: either with the header facing down, directly mounted on a PCB, or as a standalone, with a flat cable for communication. It is also highly flexible, with native CAN support. The MTi-62VRU comes as an industrial-grade, highly affordable MEMS-based orientation sensor with an integrated sensor fusion algorithm and an easy-to-use Development Kit.

MTi-620 Software

You can do everything you need to with your MTi-620 using the MT Software Suite. The suite contains a specially developed, easy-to-use graphical user interface, as well as drivers for various operating systems. It also offers example source code and complete documentation. The software includes: 

  • MT Manager (GUI) 
  • MT SDK, including programming examples for C, C++, C#, MATLAB, Python, ROS and Nucleo boards 
  • Magnetic Field Mapper (MFM) calibration tool, as GUI and SDK 

For additional support, you can also contact our technical support staff.
