Inertial Measurement Unit IMU501D

IMU501D is especially constructed for oil/gas pipeline inspection cases requiring high precision, with geometry optimized for medium to large pipeline diameters. IMU501D is based on three Optolink’s single axis closed loop fiber-optic gyroscope SRS501 and three pendulum accelerometers.
