Product Description

The 1056 - PhidgetSpatial 3/3/3, 9 Axis IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) measures static and dynamic acceleration in 3 axes, up to 5g.; it also measures magnetic field in 3-axes up to ±4 Gauss and finally measures angular rotation in 3 axes, up to ±400° per second.

With the 1056, you are getting a lot more than 3 sensor chips slapped on a board. The 1056 has been rigorously tested to ensure that the output data correlates to physical real life motion, instead of relying solely on sensor data sheets for device specifications. We also use precise voltage supply filtering to guarantee low noise and correct sensor operation.


The Compass is continuously calibrated for changes in sensitivity and offset. Errors introduced by magnetic fields and distortion of the earth's magnetic field may be compensated out by using our calibration program to calculate the correction factors to feed the device.

Each Gyroscope axis is calibrated at the factory for sensitivity to rotation and cross-axis mis-alignment.

Each accelerometer axis is calibrated at the factory for cross-axis mis-alignment, sensitivity to positive and negative acceleration, and offset.

Comes packaged with:

  • A USB A to Mini-B Cable


Use the following program to correct for magnetic errors in your application:
