SBG Systems improves Ellipse inertial sensors

January 31, 2017  - By

SBG Systems has released a new version of the Ellipse Series, its product line of miniature inertial sensors. The Ellipse has been greatly improved, showing higher performance in attitude measurement while adding the Galileo constellation to its GNSS receiver.

After thousands of Ellipse miniature inertial sensors operational on the field, SBG Systems has made major improvements to its Ellipse line of miniature inertial sensors while keeping the same form factor and price level.

Attitude Accuracy Improved by a Factor of Two. With low-noise gyroscopes and new high performance accelerometers providing superior noise level, the accuracy of every Ellipse model has now improved from 0.2° to 0.1° in roll and pitch. In addition, the new accelerometers tolerate very high vibration environments (up to 8 g).

The Ellipse-N model is an all-in-one inertial sensor that embeds a L1 GNSS receiver. Ellipse-N is already compatible with GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou constellations. With the addition of Galileo tracking, Ellipse-N benefits from more satellites, improving the signal robustness in harsh environments.

Ellipse embeds high-quality sensors with a greatly improved long-term stability. Sensors are totally integrated in an IP68 enclosure, resistant to dust and water.

Every Ellipse sensor is tested and calibrated in temperature and dynamics, to ensure constant behavior in every condition. Highly robust, Ellipse are guaranteed for two years. This warranty can be now extended up to five years.

Entry-level Solution for Surveying. The Ellipse Series is extremely powerful for its size. It is an affordable all-in-one solution providing accurate attitude and position for surveying applications, whether they are terrestrial, aerial, or marine.

With its fully backward compatibility design, the new Ellipse series can be used as a drop-in replacement of the previous Ellipse. No specific action is required in terms of mechanical, electrical or software integration. The new Ellipse sensors are available for ordering now.
