The Honeywell 6-D Motion Variant 6DF (six degrees of freedom) Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensors are designed to provide motion, position, and navigational sensing from a durable single device over six degrees of freedom. This is achieved by using MEMS (microelectromechanical system) technology to sense translational movement in three perpendicular axes (surge, heave, sway) and rotational movement about three perpendicular axes (roll, pitch, yaw). Because the movement and rotation along the three axes are independent of each other, such motion is said to have "six degrees of freedom."
The 6DF Series IMU measures the motion of the equipment onto which it is attached and delivers the data to the equipment's control module using industry-standard CAN SAEJ1939 communications protocol, allowing the operator to focus on other equipment functions, enabling more precise control than can be achieved by using only the human eye, thus increasing safety, stability, and productivity.
