THE INDUSTRIAL SERIES
The Industrial Series product line is built on a miniature, high-performance, temperature calibrated IMU core. Each
product in the series shares a common protocol and interface, allowing the user to incorporate AHRS, GPS/INS
and/or GPS-Compass functionality depending on the target application and performance requirements.
