Purchase and Options

Option(s)

Starting with the -J series, CHIMU rate sensors are temperature calibrated by default. However, there are a three options for the latest CHIMU-J units, described here:

  • Basic:
    • Unit should be calibrated (accelerometers and magnetometers) by user for precise operation(see manual for instructions).
      • USB Node recommended for easy calibation
    • Primary connector has SPI/UART. Secondary connector does not have the SPI Clock signal routed. In its place is a reset line.
  • Calibrated
    • Unit is calibrated prior to shipment on all sensors
    • Magnetic declination / inclination programmed for user location (provide at purchase, or shipping destiation will be used)
    • Primary connector has SPI/UART. Secondary connector does not have the SPI Clock signal routed. In its place is a reset line.
  • Calibrated w/ alternate SPI
    • Unit is calibrated per above description
    • Secondary connector has all SPI pins output, allowing communication via SPI on this interface as well as the main pin connector.

Legacy product

Older CHIMU units will be maintained and available for sale for legacy systems until supplies are depleted. Please contact us if you have any questions about inter-operability between older CHIMU and CHIMU -J units. User manual for older units is here: CHIMU Datasheet and User Manual(OLDER UNITS)

Also Recommended

If you are using a CHIMU in a PC or data collection application, or if you want to change settings easily, we highly recommend you purchase a USB Node as well. This is essentially a serial to USB converter that the CHIMU plugs into directly and allows easy communication via our GUI.

CHIMU - Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS)

The CHIMU is a miniature, low cost Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS). AHRS units employ rate, acceleration and magnetic sensing to produce a full inertial attitude and heading estimate.

 

CHIMU features include the latest MEMS sensors, Quaternion based estimation filter, centripetal acceleration correction, UART and SPI outputs, and more. Please see our user manual for more information!
