New Pow­er-IMU 2023 / GEMAC MOTUS Black­line and Greenline

GEMAC MOTUS Blackline / Greenline

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess­ful mar­ket launch of the GEMAC Motus®, in 2023 GEMAC will expand the exist­ing sen­sor port­fo­lio with new inno­v­a­tive prod­uct solu­tions. In addi­tion to the new GEMAC Motus® BLACK­LINE ver­sion in plas­tic hous­ing, the low-cost GEMAC Motus® GREEN­LINE vari­ant will round off the portfolio.

With the GEMAC Motus® — the first pow­er IMU for mobile pow­er machines — a sen­sor mea­sur­ing unit con­fig­urable for a wide range of appli­ca­tions has been devel­oped, which enables 6‑axis motion detec­tion on mobile machines, such as con­struc­tion machin­ery, agri­cul­tur­al machin­ery, forestry machin­ery, crane and lift­ing tech­nol­o­gy, as well as on ships.


GEMAC Motus® BLACK­LINE will have com­pa­ra­ble tech­ni­cal fea­tures and also offers cost-effec­tive vari­ants with the plas­tic hous­ing and dif­fer­ent accu­ra­cy types.

  • High pre­ci­sion mea­sure­ment of sta­t­ic (±0.1° to ±0.3°) and dynam­ic (±0.25° bis ±0.5°) accuracy
  • Increase of the mea­sur­ing speed by cal­cu­la­tions in the mea­sur­ing unit
  • Auto­mat­ic and indi­vid­ual con­fig­u­ra­tion of the attach­ment posi­tion and axes for tilt output
  • Flex­i­ble zero point adjust­ment and pre­cise cal­cu­la­tion of all angle formats

The self-devel­oped sen­sor fusion algo­rithm also used in GEMAC Motus® BLACK­LINE for high-pre­ci­sion ori­en­ta­tion cal­cu­la­tion is now even more robust thanks to fur­ther opti­miza­tions. Sen­sor fusion fil­ters sup­press exter­nal accel­er­a­tions. Indi­vid­ual sen­sor fusion con­fig­u­ra­tions allow fil­ter dynam­ics to be deac­ti­vat­ed (adap­tive damp­ing) and the damp­ing fac­tor to be set man­u­al­ly for even more sta­ble out­put val­ues in very dynam­ic appli­ca­tions or con­tin­u­ous move­ment of a mobile machine.

GEMAC Motus® BLACK­LINE will be avail­able in three basic types with dif­fer­ent tech­ni­cal specifications:

  1. Acqui­si­tion of sta­t­ic and dynam­ic incli­na­tion, accel­er­a­tion and rota­tion rate
  2. Acqui­si­tion of sta­t­ic and dynam­ic inclination
  3. Acqui­si­tion of sta­t­ic inclination


The port­fo­lio will be round­ed off by the GEMAC Motus® GREEN­LINE prod­uct line. With an accu­ra­cy of ±0.5°, the main focus is on the size and flex­i­bil­i­ty of the sensor.
Slim­mer design offers the pos­si­bil­i­ty of flex­i­ble mount­ing of the sen­sor on the mobile machine, which is made pos­si­ble with a vari­able (and cus­tomized) mount­ing plate and hole patterns.
Both prod­uct lines are avail­able for five dif­fer­ent inter­faces: for the ana­log inter­faces cur­rent and volt­age as well as for the dig­i­tal inter­faces CAN, CANopen and SAE J1939. On cus­tomer request, they are also avail­able in dif­fer­ent col­ors for projects.
