Miniature MEMS based AHRS
The 3rd generation MTi contains gyroscopes, accelerometers and magnetometers in 3D, which enables it to output drift free orientation and calibrated data in real time. It has been proven in the field with 10.000s units shipped.
Important: End-of-Life. The MTi is Xsens 3rd generation product. On August 31st, 2013, Xsens has issued an End-of-Life notice for the 3rd generation MTi products. Details on the EOL can be found in the End of Life Notice MTi 3rd generation (PDF). The product is still in production, however it is not recommended for new designs. Please refer to the new MTi 10-series and MTi 100-series for the 4th generation MTi.
