New angular rate sensor for automotive and motorsports applications

7310 Angular Rate Sensor
IRVINE, Calif. - Jan. 11, 2018 - s4story -- Meggitt Sensing Systems, a division of Meggitt PLC, has released a new angular rate sensor for automotive safety testing and other applications requiring accurate measurement of rotational velocity. The Model 7310 is compatible with existing ATD mounting blocks and uses Meggitt's expertise in designing accurate and reliable sensors for extreme environments.

This sensor has a low profile and small footprint that fits comfortably within the head or pelvis of Anthropomorphic Test Dummies (ATDs). The 7310 comes with an integral silicon-jacketed cable and all of the necessary mounting hardware for ease of installation. This rugged device provides reliable sensing performance under excessive vibration environments and withstands shocks to 5,000 g.

Other key features include:

•  ranges of 100, 500, 1500, 6K, 12K and 18K deg/sec
•  up to 2,000 Hz bandwidth
•  weighs less than 3 grams
•  operates with 5 to 16 V input
