Honeywell Launches New Ultra-Rugged Inertial Measurement Units

Roughly the size of a bottle cap, the new HG1125 and HG1126 inertial measurement units (IMUs) are low-cost and can survive shocks up to 40,000 G-force By DA Reporter / 11 May 2021

Honeywell’s new series of miniature inertial measurement units are ruggedized to offer best-in-class accuracy along with durability to survive high-shock environments. 

These IMUs can be used for a variety of applications such as tactical military needs, drilling, unmanned aerial vehicles or navigation systems for general aviation aircraft. The HG1125 and HG1126 use sensors based on micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) technology to precisely measure motion.  

“Low-cost, ultra-rugged IMUs are in high demand across a variety of market segments where customers need high-performance navigation, but they’re limited by size or cost constraints,” said Matt Picchetti, vice president and general manager, Navigation & Sensors, Honeywell Aerospace. 

“Our new HG1125 and HG1126 products meet all of these requirements, making them an ideal solution for customers operating in a wide variety of high-shock environments.”

The first deliveries of these new products are set to begin in June 2021.
