High Speed Digital Interface
The DSP-3100 fiber optic gyroscope (FOG) offers defense and commercial engineers a high speed digital RS-422 interface with 1000 Hz asynchronous output. This robust and versatile gyro also features an industry-standard Samtec 26-pin connector. Its small package makes it ideal for integration into systems requirement a compact precision gyro at an affordable price with no sacrifice of performance, reliability or durability.

Versatile Performer
The DSP-3100 gyro is designed for such varied applications as weapon platform stabilization, precision pointing, antenna, optical and high-speed gimbal stabilization and integration into higher level sensors and systems including inertial navigation systems (INS), inertial measurement units (IMU) and Attitude, Heading and Referencing systems (AHRS).

Featured Highlights

  • If you need a high-performance, dual-axis militarized fiber optic gyro for superior stabilization, consider the DSP-4000 FOG.
  • If you need a compact commercial FOG with a choice of analog, digital, and RS-232 outputs, consider the DSP-3000 FOG.
  • If you require a true RS-422 interface and a 1000 Hz synchronous output in a durable, shielded package, take a look at the commercial DSP-3400 FOG.

Exclusive Technology

  • DSP Technology
    KVH's Digital Signal Processing (DSP) electronics improve fiber optic gyro performance in such critical areas as scale factor and bias versus temperature, scale factor linearity, turn-on to turn-on repeatability, and maximum input rate. The breakthrough DSP design is covered by multiple patents and overcomes the limitations of analog signal processing, virtually eliminating temperature-sensitive drift and rotation errors.*

* This product is covered by one or more patents, including U.S. Patent #6,429,939, "DSP Signal Processing for Open Loop Fiber Optic Sensors."
