Flexible & durable sensor array from Honeywell for heavy-duty & off-highway applications now in stock at Powell Electronics
25 October 2022
High performance TARS-IMU sensor array from Honeywell reports vehicle angular rate, acceleration & inclination data (6 degrees of freedom)
Now available through Powell Electronics, trusted supplier of connectors & more for hi-rel applications including defence, aerospace & industrial, is the Transportation Attitude Reference System (TARS) from Honeywell. TARS is a packaged sensor array designed to report vehicle angular rate, acceleration & attitude data for demanding applications such as heavy duty & off-highway transportation.
The TARS-IMU (inertial measurement unit) device measures important vehicle characteristics and enhances efficiency and productivity by reporting key data required to automate and monitor movements of vehicle systems and components. With two sensor models for different power levels, the TARS-IMU sensor array accommodates both 5 V and 9 V to 36 V vehicle power systems.
The sensor fusion algorithm can be customised for specific vehicle applications via on-board firmware, allowing movement data to be filtered to minimise unwanted noise and vibrations for improved position accuracy. Communication is transmitted using industry standard CAN J1939 connectivity. As a standard, the TARS-IMU component is calibrated on aerospace-grade rate tables at the factory to provide enhanced calibration consistency between units.
Powell - Honeywell TARS 'Six degrees of freedom'
The operating temperature range is -40°C up to +85°C. The TARS-IMU sensor array comes in a ruggedised PBT thermoplastic housing and is IP67 and IP69K certified for use in the most demanding environments. A metal guard for added protection is also available.
