What does "1g" equal in the ADIS16485?"



All of the ADIS163xx and ADIS164xx IMU products offer calibrated accelerometers.The calibration method for these accelerometers involves using sensor orientation, with respect to local gravity. Using the WGS-84 formula for estimating "g" at the calibration site, 1g = 9.798 m/sec^2. See the attached Excel file for more details on the calculation.
