Rueil-Malmaison, France – SBG Systems added an inertial system to its Ekinox Series. With integrated Dual Antenna GPS + GLONASS receiver, the Ekinox-D is a ready-to-use survey grade inertial navigation system which provides consistent true heading (0.05°).

The survey grade Ekinox-D is a high performance inertial navigation system, which embeds a dual antenna L1/L2 GNSS receiver to deliver more robust heading and position while increasing satellite reception availability. The Ekinox-D is an integrated system. GNSS data and inertial information are fused by an Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) to improve data integrity. This allows the system to achieve 0.05° roll, pitch and true heading; 5 cm heave; and 2 cm RTK GNSS position.

Instead of mounting a separate GNSS receiver and inertial system, the Ekinox-D can be installed and connected to other systems (e.g. camera, SONAR, LiDAR, etc.). With its 8 GB data logger and its high output rate (200 Hz), Ekinox-D manages applications where robust heading is required.
The IP68 Ekinox Series brings robust, maintenance free and cost-effective MEMS due to the selection of high end MEMS sensors, an advanced calibration procedure and algorithm design.
