Ellipse Series, a Brand New Family of Miniature Inertial Sensors: More Accurate & Robust for the Same Budget

SBG Systems releases the Ellipse Series, a brand new product range of miniature inertial systems replacing the IG-500 Series. For the same budget, customers benefits from higher accuracy, advanced filtering and features inspired from high end inertial navigation systems.

At the Core of the Ellipse Series: Very Low Noise Gyroscopes & GNSS

After many years of success and thousands of sensors on the field, the IG-500 Series is being replaced by a brand new generation: the Ellipse Series. This new series of miniature inertial systems benefits from a new design, new sensors, new capabilities, and new algorithms. "We have selected state-of-the-art MEMS sensors, especially very low noise gyroscopes that greatly enhance Ellipse performance. We integrated cutting-edge GNSS receiver while keeping a small size," declares Alexis Guinamard, CTO of SBG Systems.

More Accurate, More Robust, More Features, for the Same Budget
With the Ellipse Series, SBG Systems sets up new standard for miniature inertial systems. "Being the only one on the market to design both high-end and entry-level sensors, we are able to upgrade miniature sensors capabilities by injecting some advanced and proven filtering and features inspired from high end inertial navigation systems" adds the CTO. Additionally to higher accuracy, we added for the same budget an improved FIR and rejection filtering, robust IP68 enclosure, high output rate, RTK corrections, automatic alignment, etc.

An Amazing Dual Antenna Model Completes this Innovative Product Line
Weighting from 45 grams, Ellipse sensors are incredibly flexible. The Ellipse-A model provides 3D orientation and heave. For navigation, you can connect your own GPS with the Ellipse-E, or use the internal one by choosing the Ellipse-N model. The amazing Ellipse-D completes this state-of-the-art miniature sensor family. This model is a little larger than the rest of the series because it integrates a Survey-grade L1/L2 GNSS receiver with two antennas for unmatched heading and position accuracy.

maxon motor’s - Exoskeleton Joint Actuator

maxon motor's - Exoskeleton Joint Actuator

A brushless DC motor solution for use in hip and knee exoskeletons. This complete joint actuation unit consists of motor, gearhead, encoder and position controller. Fitting absolute encoder directly at the joint rotation provides designers increased positioning accuracy. The unit will deliver 54Nm of continuous torque and 120Nm on a 20% duty cycle. The system can be operated on supplies between 10 and 50V DC and the actuation speed is up to 22rpm.
