The Ellipse series has been improved, showing unmatched performance in attitude measurement while adding Galileo constellation to its GNSS receiver. With low noise gyroscopes and high performance accelerometers providing superior noise level, the accuracy of every Ellipse models has been improved from 0,2° to 0,1° in roll and pitch. In addition, the new accelerometers tolerate vibration environments up to 8 g.

The Ellipse-N model is an all-in-one inertial sensor that embeds a L1 GNSS receiver. Ellipse-N is already compatible with GPS, Glonass, and Beidou constellations. With the addition of Galileo tracking, Ellipse-N benefits from more satellites, improving the signal robustness in harsh environments, said the company. Ellipse sensors connect to odometer while receiving RTK correction for an accurate trajectory even during GPS outages. CAN is available on every model.

The product comes in an IP68-rated enclosure, resistant to dust and water. Every Ellipse sensor is tested and calibrated in temperature and dynamics, to ensure constant behavior in every condition. According to the company, the sensors are guaranteed for two years. This warranty can be now extended up to 5 years. Due to a backward compatibility design, the series can be used as a drop-in replacement of the previous Ellipse. No specific action is required in terms of mechanical, electrical, or software integration.
