Measurement Specialties (Hampton, VA) now offers the Model 620 angular rate sensor that accurately measures angular velocity in test and measurement applications. The compact, MEMS based angular rate gyro is designed for harsh applications where accurate angular velocity measurements are required in high shock environments. Widely used in high impact automotive safety testing environments such as crash test, pedestrian impact and rollover testing, the new angular rate sensor is also ideally suited for additional testing and OEM applications such as munitions testing, motorsports and biomechanics testing. Features include:

  • Dynamic ranges from ±500 °/s to ±50,000 °/s.
  • Performance over the full operating temperature range of -40°C to +105°C.
  • Differential zero acceleration output of ±100 mV.
  • Excitation voltage of 7 VDC to 16 VDC with a 5 VDC option available.
