  • Inertial Navigation Systems-Image
    Inertial Navigation Systems - (78 companies)
    Types of Gyros. Gyroscopes are sensors for measuring rotation. Optical, spinning-mass, or vibrating gyros are used to sense the angular or rotary rate. Optical gyros permit the reflection of a laser ray many times within an enclosure. Spinning mass... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Flywheels-Image
    Flywheels - (29 companies)
    Flywheels have a high mass and are connected to a rotating shaft that smoothes the delivery of torque, or turning power, from a motor or engine. The inertia of flywheels allows them to absorb and release energy with little change in speed. Flywheels... Learn More

    Metal Spinning Machines - (14 companies)
    Metal spinning machines are used in metal spinning (spin forming, flow forming), a process by which a metallic disk or tube is rotated at high speeds and formed into an axially symmetric part. Typically, metal spinning machines are used to produce... Learn More
  • Mass Spectrometers - (123 companies)
    Mass spectrometers separate ions by their mass-to-charge (m/z) ratios. They are used to identify compounds by the mass of one or more elements in the compound. They are also used to determine the isotopic composition of one or more elements... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Mass Flow Meters and Controllers - (259 companies)
    Mass flow meters and controllers measure flow rate in units of mass or volume per units of time (e.g., pounds per minute). They are designed for use with gases, liquids, steams, or slurries. How to Select Mass Flow Meters and Controllers. Image... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Mass Flow Switches - (40 companies)
    Mass liquid flow switches and mass gas flow switches are devices used for measuring the flow or quantity of a moving liquid or gas in terms of a unit of mass per unit time, such as pounds per minute. These devices may be sensors with electrical... Search by Specification | Learn More

Spinning mass gyroscopes use a steadily-moving mass with a free-moving axis (gimbal). They are very fragile and require regular maintenance. When a spinning mass gyro is tilted, the gyroscopic effect causes precession – motion orthogonal to the direction tilt sense – along the axis of the rotating...

...does. In addition, the middle finger points. in the direction of the precession vector. This is also known as the law of gyroscopic precession. Types of Spinning Mass Gyros. There are two basic types of single axis, spinning mass gyros. A rate gyro which is an open loop system and a rate. integrating...

The pickoff output gain, or transfer function, is determined by the angular momentum of. the spinning mass...
