Product Name:MRU 5
Product Description:The MRU 5 is the ideal sensor for motion compensation of multi-beam echo sounders, offshore cranes, hydroacoustic positioning systems and dynamic motion monitoring of roll, pitch and linear accelerations on offshore structures. The MRU 5 incorporates three highly accurate accelerometers and three high-end Kongsberg Seatex developed Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Structures (MEMS) gyros of type MRG (MRU Rate Gyro). The MRG gyro combines low noise, excellent bias stability and gain accuracy. Very high reliability is achieved by using solid state sensors with no rotational or mechanical wearout parts.
