Seventh Generation AHRS from MGL Avionics

MGL Avionics have begun shipping a new generation of AHRS sensors, the SP-7 AHRS and SP-6 Compass Sensor (magnetometer).

The SP-7 AHRS is MGL Avionics's seventh generation AHRS system (attitude sensor) for use with all MGL Avionics products that display attitude. The core building blocks of the system includes a three axis ST MEMS rate gyroscope, a three axis ST MEMS accelerometer and an ARM Cortex 32-bit microprocessor system. The SP-7 will allow the display of attitude (horizon), G-force, turn rate, and slip/skid on MGL Avionics products that allow these features.

The SP-7 can handle roll-rates up to 250 deg/sec and comes in at $200 less than its predecessor, at a price of $800.

The previous SP-2 and SP-4 sensors have been discontinued.
