ACEINNA has launched a MEMS-based, dynamic tilt sensor module
that combines accelerometers, gyroscopes and a temperature sensor with advanced
calibration and correction algorithms, providing accurate 3D acceleration, 3D
rate and pitch and roll measurement in moving vehicle applications. The module
is completely sealed with an integrated connector, making it suitable for rugged
construction, off-road and agriculture applications.

The
MTLT305D
sensor module
uses advanced sensor fusion (Extended Kalman
Filtering) and calibration algorithms to achieve 0.5-degree tilt and 50k hours. The plastic housing is durable under hazardous environments for
both IP68 and IP69K ratings.

The
module also features CAN J1939 and RS232 interfaces for network connectivity.
It includes an Ampseal 16, 6-position connector and supports a wide 4.9-V to
32-V supply input range (qualified for use in both 12-V and 24-V vehicle
platforms).

The
MTLT305D supports industry standard SAE J1939 messaging over the CAN bus, and
the ACEINNA NAV-VIEW software is said to provide a simple to use graphical
interface to display, record, playback, and analyze all the MTLT305D parameters
over the RS232 port. Designers can also use the software to set user-configurable
fields in the MTLT305D to optimize the system performance for various dynamic
applications.

The
MTLT305D is available directly from ACEINNA and its distribution network.
