The Model 609/610 Angular Rate Sensor is a small analog gyroscope designed specifically for automotive safety testing and other system designs requiring accurate measurement of angular velocity. The Model 609/610 series utilizes silicon MEMS sensing elements with custom electronics and packaging to produce an angular rate sensor that is highly reliable even under excessive shock and vibration environments. The 609/610 Angular Rate Sensor is fully NHTSA FMVSS 202a, SAE J211 & ISO 6487 compliant and now supplied with a 5-16 VDC excitation.
The model 609 & 610 are the same size, weight and form factor. The 609 has the traditional mounting holes at the front of the sensor housing versus the 610 which has mounting holes at opposite corners.
A wide selection of ranges is available for your specific applications along with a triaxial mounting block designed for mounting of both the model 609/610 angular rate sensors and the model 64X accelerometers.
For a triaxial version, see model 603 angular rate sensor.
