GPS logger employs multiple sensors

-January 07, 2017

The Aaronia GPS Logger from Saelig is a tiny USB-based device that packs six sensors to log position, speed, and height with a signal sensitivity of -165 dBm. Although originally designed for recording the coordinates and orientation of Aaronia antennas, the multiaxis data logger can also be used in a variety of non-RF applications.

Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the GPS Logger starts up in about 30 seconds and captures data at a rate of 35 logs/second. Its 66-channel GPS sensor with built-in antenna offers position accuracy of 1.8 m, velocity measurements of 515 m/s accurate to within 0.1 m, and altitude readings to 18 m. The tilt sensor and digital compass capture the inclination and orientation of an object during the measurement process, while a 3D/triaxial accelerometer measures g-force up to 8 g with 4-mg resolution.

All sensor data can be saved to a supplied 2-Gbyte microSD card or streamed via USB. Equipped with an internal 650-mAh LiPo battery, the logger is able to record up to two days of full-speed data to the card. Lowering the data rate allows logging time to be extended for weeks or even months.

The GPS Logger costs $599 and can be purchased directly from Saelig or manufacturer Aaronia.
