GEMAC Motus®

Abso­lu­te Pre­cis­i­on - The Power-IMU

Incli­na­ti­on sen­sors are now stan­dard com­pon­ents in mobi­le appli­ca­ti­ons. GEMAC as a long­time spe­cia­list for incli­na­ti­on and iner­ti­al sen­sors now laun­ches the new pro­duct fami­ly of high-pre­cis­i­on dyna­mic incli­na­ti­on sen­sors: the GEMAC Motus®.
The new sys­tem enables 6-axis moti­on detec­tion based on raw data acqui­si­ti­on for acce­le­ra­ti­on (3-axis) and rota­ti­on rate (3-axis). In the sen­sor, high-pre­cis­i­on data pro­ces­sing is per­forming using a com­plex sen­sor fusi­on algo­rithm deve­lo­ped by GEMAC. This algo­rithm com­bi­nes and expands the com­ple­men­ta­ry fil­ter and the Kal­man fil­ter to take advan­ta­ge of both methods and com­pen­sa­te for the dis­ad­van­ta­ges. Inte­gra­ted sen­sor fusi­on fil­ters help to cal­cu­la­te ori­en­ta­ti­on by sup­pres­sing exter­nal accelerations.
The GEMAC Motus® offers a decisi­ve advan­ta­ge. In addi­ti­on to the raw data for acce­le­ra­ti­on and rota­ti­on rate, intern­al­ly cal­cu­la­ted values such as tilt or rota­ti­on ang­le can be out­put in dif­fe­rent axes. So, that in the future, devia­ti­ons can be detec­ted even fas­ter and ana­ly­zed more pre­cis­e­ly. Also, both sta­tic and dyna­mic accu­ra­cy are signi­fi­cant­ly impro­ved com­pared to the exis­ting sensors.
Due to the inter­nal com­bi­na­ti­on and cal­cu­la­ti­on of all mea­su­red values, one mea­su­ring sys­tem only can be inte­gra­ted ins­tead of having several.
GEMAC Motus® stands for the hig­hest per­for­mance in high-pre­cis­i­on acqui­si­ti­on and digi­tiza­ti­on of move­ments to ensu­re maxi­mum safe­ty when using mobi­le machi­nery. Design and func­tion­a­li­ty also ensu­re ulti­ma­te dura­bi­li­ty and eco­no­my. That makes the GEMAC Motus® the world’s first power-IMU for mobi­le power machines.

The­se fea­tures make the GEMAC-Motus® the Power-IMU.

  • Hig­hest pre­cis­i­on and safe­ty by signi­fi­cant­ly impro­ving the sta­tic and dyna­mic accu­ra­cy of the measurement
  • Increase of the mea­su­ring speed by cal­cu­la­ti­on alre­a­dy in the mea­su­ring unit (6-axis sen­sor fusi­on algorithm)
  • Effec­ti­ve sup­pres­si­on of exter­nal accelerations
  • An addi­tio­nal out­put of raw data possible
  • Stur­dy full metal zinc die-cast housing
  • Lowest power con­sump­ti­on from 0.29W (digi­tal interfaces)
  • Most exten­si­ve power sup­p­ly ran­ge 7.5 V … 36 V (digi­tal interfaces)
  • Lowest tem­pe­ra­tu­re coefficient
  • Saves space at the machi­ne by eli­mi­na­ting other sensors
  • Hig­hest dura­bi­li­ty through reduc­tion of components
  • Hig­hest eco­no­mic effi­ci­en­cy through lower cos­ts for sen­sor technology
  • Redu­ced inte­gra­ti­on effort
