The quartz MEMS gyro from Systron Donner Automotive measures a range of angular rates. Available either as a standalone unit or bundled into a multi-axis inertial measurement unit, the MicroGyro can be used by industries such as agriculture, construction, and a host of recreational vehicles. With its piezoelectric quartz turning fork design, the angular-rate sensor can withstand conditions up to 125ºC (257ºF), and its continuous built-in test provides true continuous monitoring of sensor health and simultaneous rate sensing. These features make the MicroGyro suitable for the harsh conditions of farming and construction and for helping off-highway vehicles remain stable while driving.
