The new ADXRS645 gyro looks like it could suit our requirements for but we have restrictions on where we can mount the device, a central bore with fluid flow will not allow us to locate it so that the rate axis rotation will be dead centre. Can the gyro be mounted off the axis centre line (approx. 3cm) and if so how do I calibrate the output according to the distance from centre?
Thank you for your post. I had the very same concern when I first started working with gyroscopes! Fortunately, no matter where the gyroscope is, with respect to the axis of rotation, it will measure the rate of rotation in the same manner.
