Fiber optic gyroscope features

Feb 26, 2019

(1) with few parts, the instrument is firm and stable, and has strong impact resistance and anti-acceleration movement ability;
(2) the length of the fiber is relatively long, making the detection sensitivity and resolution several orders of magnitude higher than that of the laser gyroscope;
(3) without mechanical transmission parts, there is no wear problem, so it has a long service life;
(4) easy to use integrated optical technology, stable signal, and can be directly used in digital output, and connected with the computer interface;
(5) by changing the length of the optical fiber or the number of times the light circulates in the coil, different accuracy can be achieved and a wide dynamic range can be achieved;
(6) the propagation time of the coherent beam is short, so it can be started instantly in principle without preheating;
(7) it can be used together with ring laser gyro to form sensors of various inertial navigation systems, especially those of strapdown inertial navigation systems;
(8) simple structure, low price, small size, light weight.
