LORD MicroStrain Wins Sensors Expo Innovation Award for 3DM-GX4-25 Inertial Sensor

This marks the eighth straight year (and 13 of the last 14) that LORD MicroStrain has won a Best of Sensors Expo Award.

(Cary, NC - July 22, 2014) - LORD MicroStrain® Sensing Systems - a global leader in developing embedded sensing systems for aerospace and industrial markets - has been awarded a 2014 Best of Sensors Expo Silver Innovation Award for its 3DM-GX4-25 Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) Inertial Sensor.


This marks the eighth straight year (and 13 of the last 14) that LORD MicroStrain has won a Best of Sensors Expo Award. The award was presented by Mat Dirjish, Executive Editor of Sensors Magazine, at the Sensors Expo & Conference on June 26 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

"We were thrilled to receive so many nominations for this years awards on applications and innovations in the world of sensors, and to recognize excellence among engineers," said Dirjish. "The nominations demonstrated exceptional innovation in engineering, applications, and sensor technology, and we applaud all of the winners and all the hard work they put in."

LORD MicroStrains 3DM-GX4-25 features tri-axial accelerometers, magnetometers, and gyroscopes, plus an onboard Adaptive Kalman Filter and a pressure altimeter. Weighing just 16.5 grams, the GX4-25 is among the smallest and lightest in its class. Sensors Magazine recognized the GX4-25 for its dual processors and 10°/hour gyro bias stability. In addition, it is fully calibrated and temperature-compensated, helping produce high performance under vibration and dynamic conditions.

The 3DM-GX4-25 has applications across a wide variety of industries and disciplines. It is ideally suited for camera and platform stabilization, antenna pointing, autopilot operation in lightweight vehicles, and industrial attitude and position sensing.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
