rate gyro

rate gyro

rate gyro
A gyro having one plane of freedom at right angles to the plane of rotation and constructed so that a calibrated spring opposes the precessive forces to indicate the rate of rotation about the plane at right angles to both the plane of rotation and the plane of freedom. A turn and slip indicator uses a rate gyro. See also rate of turn.

The rate gyro sensor can measure azimuth and pitch angular velocity.
For the system, working in the precision stabilization mode, it is necessary to take into consideration that every contour channel includes the platform with payload, motor, pulse-width-modulator (PWM), and rate gyro [12, 15].
Gyroscope and it is further alienated into sub parts: Attitude Gyro, Turn Rate Gyro and Directional Gyro.
The replacement rate gyro sensor is approved for installation under STC number ST02416SE.
The compact, MEMS-based angular rate gyro is designed for harsh applications where accurate angular velocity measurements are required in high shock environments.
A rate-based autopilot works by reference from a rate gyro inside an electric turn coordinator, arguably a less stable reference, especially in turbulence as the turn coordinator bounces.
We intended to use the magnetometer to always tell us where North was in a given environment, and use that to correct heading drift in our rate gyro.
The ADIS16135 precision angular rate gyro and the ADIS16385 iSensor internal measurement unit (IMU) are both based on ADI's iMEMS inertial sensor technology cores and offer 66[degrees]hr.
These sensor units provide drift-free 3D orientation as well as kinematic data: 3D acceleration (MEMS solid state sensors, capacitive readout), 3D rate gyro (MEMS solid state sensors, monolithic, beam structure, capacitive readout) and 3D earth-magnetic field (magnetometer in thin film magneto resistive technology) and are excellent measurement units for orientation and kinematic data measurements of human body segments.
The John Deere Terrain Compensation Module uses only a single rate gyro and a single accelerometer to provide the same performance increase at a significantly lower cost.
What distinguishes this rate gyro from most others is its ability to detect rotation rates at 0 Hz, said Scott Orlosky, a mechanical engineer and director of the Systron Donner commercial business unit.
