Rueil-Malmaison, France, SBG Systems is proud to announce the new Ekinox 2 Series, a new generation of the SBG’s advanced and compact inertial navigation systems. With new accelerometers and gyroscopes, Ekinox 2 attitude accuracy has been enhanced by a factor of two while improving resistance to vibrations and integrating the Beidou constellation.

Ekinox 2 Series: Twice More Accurate

Ekinox Series is a line of MEMS-based inertial navigation systems. Released in 2013, Ekinox has achieved a remarkable success thanks to its smart balance of accuracy, price, and weight. Thanks to continuous innovation, SBG Systems offers to its customers a new generation twice more accurate in attitude for the same price level. This major improvement is due to a complete redesign of the in-house Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) integrating new cutting-edge gyroscopes and accelerometers.

Perfectly Suited to Demanding Applications

With higher accuracy for the same form factor and price level, Ekinox 2 Series is the best choice for industrial-grade vehicle navigation whether they are aerial, terrestrial, or marine. This new generation provides 0.02° roll and pitch, 0.05° heading, and a centimeter-level position. It is ideal for demanding application such as autonomous navigation, hydrography, mobile mapping, antenna tracking, etc. With new accelerometers, this new generation has also significantly improved its resistance to vibration. Finally, the addition of the Beidou constellation improves signal availability in Asia.

Easy Installation & Configuration

Compact and light-weight, Ekinox has been designed to simplify installation and operations. Configuration is made easy throughout the intuitive embedded web interface where all parameters can be quickly displayed and adjusted. For example, you can choose your profile (Plane, Car, etc.) and the 3D view will provide a visualization of settings such as the sensor position, alignment, lever arms, etc.

Ekinox 2 Series Availability

Ekinox 2 Series is ITAR Free. The product line will be available during the second quarter of 2017. Ordering information are available from SBG Systems representatives and authorized SBG Systems dealers.
