The NGS1 sensor from Sensor Technik Wiedemann functions as an inclinometer or a gyroscopic angular rate sensor, or as a combination of the two in one housing. The device is suited for use in mobile work machines and off-highway vehicles. As a gyroscopic rate sensor, the standard measurement range is ±75°/s with an accuracy of less than or equal to 0.03%/s and a 3 dB bandwidth of 40 Hz. As an inclinometer, the standard measurement range is ±90° (accuracy less than or equal to 0.1°), with a 3 dB bandwidth of 15 Hz. The inclinometer version can also measure accelerations of up to 6 g. The sensor includes a CAN bus interface and current outputs for analog interfacing (one for each axis). The CAN interface has a diagnostic capability that allows recalibration of the offset point after installation on the vehicle.

As ground vehicles employ more electronic sensing, control and communication systems, design engineers are increasingly utilizing more commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) modules. Though COTS slashes development time and costs, it’s still difficult for many military users to find COTS boards that meet their low-volume demands for ruggedization and redundancy.
