Product Description The MAX-122-1A is a single axis solid-state rate gyro. The sensor provides a voltage proportional to the rate of turn about its sensitive axis. At zero angular rate, the output is 0.0 volts (plus a bias). Full-scale output is ±10.0 VDC for ±50°/s. A dual power supply, providing regulated +15 VDC and –15 VDC, is required. Principles of Operation Gyroscopes (Gyros) are used to measure angular motion. Vibrating Structure Gyros are solid-state devices that provide an output voltage proportional to the rate of turn applied to the sensitive axis. All the vibrating structure...

Power: Ground (Black), +15 VDC (Brown), and -15 VDC (White). Each input voltage should be within ±5%. Higher or reverse voltages will cause component damage; a lower voltage may cause faulty operation. The power inputs should be well filtered; power line noise may cause noise to appear on the outputs. Current draw is approximately 70 mA from positive supply and 35 mA from the negative supply. Output: The signal output (Blue) has a 500 ohm output resistance. The output signal is referenced to Ground (Black). The output is ±10VDC for ±50 deg/sec. The output is 0.0 VDC at zero angular rate....
