This year’s gold award was for HS-Link™ three channel High Speed Wireless Node with sample rates up to 100 kHz on all three channels. During user definable sampling sessions, HS-LINK™ stores bursts of data in a buffer; once sampling is complete data are then transferred to non-volatile flash memory. Each sensor channel has a dedicated 16 bit analog to digital converter (A/D) enabling the three distinct sensor inputs to be sampled simultaneously. HS-LINK™ also features a precision timekeeper, which can receive a high priority timing beacon, which enables multiple HS-Links™ in a star network to achieve a node-to-node data sampling synchronization of ±4 microseconds.
The silver award was for 3DM-GX3™-25, Miniature Attitude Heading Reference System. 3DM-GX3™-25 is amongst the smallest and lightest AHRS on the market today, with versions weighing as little as 11.5 grams. Improved performance in the face of ambient vibrations and oscillations is achieved by oversampling at 30 KHz and then digitally filtering and performing coning and sculling integrals at 1 kHz. Oversampling also greatly improves the resolution of the sensor readings. User adjustable output rates of up to 1000 Hz make the 3DM-GX3™-25 AHRS one of the fastest attitude heading reference systems available today. Each 3DM-GX3™-25 is individually calibrated to compensate for gyro g-sensitivity and sensor misalignment and includes routines for hard and soft iron field calibrations. Full temperature compensation ensures performance over a wide operating temperature range.
