MicroStrain MV5-AR Industrial Tilt & Angular Rate Sensor, IP68/69K Package

The MicroStrain MV5-AR brings a new level of precision to measurements of dynamic inclination, acceleration and angular rate in challenging environments such as those encountered by heavy-duty construction, off-highway, agriculture, and trucking industries.

The MV5-AR utilizes the power of a sophisticated Auto-Adaptive 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. Its power and mounting flexibility make it a single-part solution for a variety of vehicle applications.
