F60 type



1 Introduction

    The fiber optic gyroscope, as a new type of all-solid-state gyroscope, has the advantages of fast start-up, wide measuring range and high reliability. F60 single-axis medium-high precision fiber optic gyroscope can be applied to the application requirements of medium-high precision inertial guidance systems such as land-based positioning and orientation, vehicle-mounted north finder, airborne heading and marine gyroscope compass.

1.2.2 Mechanical test Sine scan vibration

The gyroscope is fixed on the shaking table by the tooling according to the vibration direction. The gyroscope is subjected to sinusoidal scanning in 3 directions, corresponding to the X-axis, Y-axis and Z-axis directions. Vibration steps; shaking table with excitation, powering up the gyroscope, after warming up for a certain time (gyroscope start-up time), testing the gyroscope output value, about 5 min; sine vibration. Vibration conditions: 20 Hz-2000 Hz , scan time 5 min, amplitude 4.2 g. During vibration, gyroscope output is recorded.

Random vibration

Vibration frequency: 20 Hz~2000 Hz

Vibration time: 5 min for each axis respectively

Vibration direction: X, Y, Z axis

2 Communication protocol

2.1 fiber optic gyroscope communication protocol

2、 Communication protocol

2.1 RS-422 mode (bidirectional)

1) Bidirectional serial communication, conforming to RS-422 interface standard.

2) External trigger signal, 1000HZ square wave.

3) starting to send data outward after the gyroscope detects the falling edge of the external trigger signal.

4) gyroscope valid data is 32 bits.

5) valid data for temperature is 14 bits.

6) data transmission baud rate of 460.8kbps.

7) Data format.

a) Data transmission format: 11 bits per frame, including: bit 1 is the start bit (0), bits 2 to 9 are data bits, bit 10 is the even parity bit, and bit 11 is the stop bit.

b) Calibration mode: even parity.

c) The valid data of gyroscope is 32 bits (the highest bit is the sign bit, 0 is "+", 1 is "-"), and the valid data of temperature is 14 bits (the highest bit is the sign bit, 0 is "+", 1 is "-").

d) Packet format: each transmission includes 10 bytes, the first byte is the frame header (80H); the second byte is the first byte of gyroscope data (low byte); the third byte is the second byte of gyroscope data; the fourth byte of gyroscope data; the fifth byte is the fourth byte of gyroscope data; the sixth byte is gyroscope fifth byte data (high byte); the seventh byte is the check bit, which is the XOR value of the first five bytes (gyroscope data) in the data packet; the eighth byte is the low byte of temperature data; the ninth byte is the high byte of temperature data; the tenth bit is the check bit, which is the XOR value of the first eight bytes (gyroscope data) in the data packet.

e) Data storage method.
