EMP-1.2K Lithium-Niobate Fiber Optic Gyroscopes (FOG) DATASHEET | MAY 2014 Applications Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Guidance Missile Guidance Aeronautics and Aviation Robotics ADVANCED SYSTEMS EMCORE’s long standing leadership in development of highly-accurate defense and military grade fiber optic components and systems is what makes the EMP1.2K a clear choice when selecting solid-state precision gyroscope components. With fully integrated optics and electronics, the EMP-1.2K is a superior device in regards to weight and form-factor for navigational applications up to 1,200 meters. It features advanced optics and digital signal processing (DSP) for much higher accuracy, lower noise and greater efficiency. The integrated DSP also improves optical drift stability, higher linearity and greater environmental flexibility. Additionally, the unit can be calibrated internally for better thermal effect. Separation of the electronics from the FOG’s sensing coil assembly provides widest variety of installation flexibility. Suitable for Demanding Applications The EMP-1.2K’s low drift and noise makes this gyro ideal for demanding applications such as: Precision Navigation (1 mile/hr without GPS) Fast, Precise Gyrocompassing to 1 milliradian Low noise line-of-sight stabilization and control General Specifications Features Separate Electronics and Sensor Modules Advanced Optics and DSP Electronics for Higher Accuracy, Lower Noise and Greater Efficiency DSP Based Closed Loop Design for Improved Drift Stability, Higher Linearity, and Greater Flexibility 500 Hz Bandwidth Specifications Values Sensor Dimensions 3.3” D x 1.0” 83.8 mm x 25.4 mm Electronics Dimensions 3.2” x 3.2” x 0.8” 81.2 mm x 81.2 mm x 20.3 mm Drift Stability, Short Term 0.005°/hr Drift Stability, Long Term 0.01°/hr Noise 0.002°/ √ hr Scale Factor Stability 50 ppm Scale Factor Linearity 25 ppm Maximum Rate 1,000°/sec Digital I/O Power +5 V Mechanical Diagram US Patent No. 7,746,476 © 2014 EMCORE Corporation | REV 2014.05 **The electronics module form factor may be customized for particular applications.
