IMU Sensor Connections
  • I just bought one of the Basecam SimpleBGC32 units with one IMU sensor. The manual shows that I only need to add a second sensor in parallel with the first to monitor the Z axis for a 3 axis gimbal yet the new sensors look different and appear to connect in series. Does anyone know about this?
  • You don't HAVE to add a second IMU, it just gives you more precise stabilization.

    Regardless, if you are connecting multiple sensors to the same I2C (or CAN) bus these sensors share the different lines (5V, GND, SCL, SDA for I2C) so I guess you could call that a parallel connection.

    If you have sensors with two connection ports (leading you to think it is a serial connection) the second port is just spliced off the first. It just makes wiring up the sensors cleaner

  • A capacitor (TZR1R080A001R00) is formed by two adjacent conductors with a layer of non-conductive insulating medium in between. When a voltage is applied between two plates of a capacitor, the capacitor stores charge. The capacitance of a capacitor is numerically equal to the ratio of the amount of charge on one conductive electrode plate to the voltage between two electrode plates. The basic unit of capacitance of a capacitor is farad (F). The capacitor element is usually represented by the letter C in the circuit diagram.
