MicroStrain Sensors ML5-AR

Industrial Tilt & Angular Rate Sensor, IP68/69K Package

The LORD Sensing ML5-AR, Attitude Reference, delivers low-cost precision measurements of dynamic inclination, acceleration and angular rate in challenging environments specifically designed for those encountered by heavy-duty construction, off-highway, agriculture, mining and trucking industries. The ML5-AR utilizes the power of a sophisticated Auto-Adaptive Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) to remove errors associated with vibration, sudden linear motions and quake.

The LORD Sensing ML5-AR gyro-stabilized inclinometer delivers low-cost precision measurements of dynamic inclination, acceleration, and angular rate in challenging environments such as those encountered by heavyduty construction, off-highway, agriculture, and trucking industries.

The ML5-AR utilizes the power of a sophisticated AutoAdaptive Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) to remove errors associated with vibration, sudden linear motions, and quake, resulting in a true reading of inclination under all conditions. LORD Sensing’s state-of-the-art temperature compensation and calibration assure error-free performance over the full operational temperature range. The compact size, wide 4.5 to 36 V power range, IP68/ IP69K rating, and CAN J1939 or CANopen communications protocol make the ML5-AR a single part solution for a full range of vehicle sizes and applications.
