Pro Gyro® is made for accuracy.
Watson Industries has been designing and making solid-state gyros since 1980. They have now produced a new series of rate gyros, the Pro Gyro®. This breakthrough new gyro is built, to be a VSG replacement and much more. Based on proven technology, this gyro is built under AS9100 quality standards with new features including built-in test and enhanced EMI/RFI protection.
The Pro Gyro® has excellent performance for stability, acceleration insensitivity, low mounting sensitivity and vibration rejection. This is achieved by having a sensing element that is finely tuned and temperature compensated. The advanced tuning methods allow better relative tolerances and better signal to noise performance. Special internal mounting holds the gyro sensing element in a stable alignment while rejecting linear vibration.
Upgrades that are standard for the Pro Gyro® include available rate ranges up to 475 degrees per second, internal power regulation for power input between 8 volts and 45 volts, and a case mounted connector.
