Honeywell Introduces Six Degrees of Freedom (6DF) Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) Sensor


HG1171 Series Enhances Safety, Stability, Productivity, and
Operational Capabilities of Heavy-Duty Vehicle Equipment

Honeywell introduced its HG1171 Series 6DF IMU sensor which is designed to provide key data for automated steering, stability, and vehicle controls in a variety of potential agricultural, construction, and material handling equipment applications.


The HG1171 Series uses MEMS (Micro Electromechanical Sensors) technology already widely used in aerospace applications for navigation and control, where our customer needs to have enhanced performance in sensing rotation rate and acceleration. The HG1171 Series features enhanced fault monitoring and reporting to verify correct operation, a capability available on Honeywell products.

Integration of the microcontroller, sensors, and communication interfaces on the HG1171 Series allows for software customization, which can save development time and money. The HG1171 Series sensors feature a high-speed CAN bus, enhanced temperature performance, low noise, and high resolution, packaged in a tough metal housing designed for most harsh environments.
