The Micro Sensor 1.8™ is one of the latest breakthroughs from Polhemus, the leaders in motion measurement innovation. This 6DOF (6 Degree-Of-Freedom) micro sensor tracking element utilizes Polhemus proprietary AC electromagnetic technology, weighs in at less than a gram, and measures only 1.8 millimeters in OD (outer diameter). Micro Sensor 1.8 comes in Standard and Flex models, for a less rigid cable option. Shown above on left, Micro Sensor 1.8 Flex is attached with optional custom Micro Mounts, allowing the sensor to slide through easily and keep sensors in place; on right, Micro Sensor 1.8 shown in hand.
Small and lightweight, it packs an enormous amount of capability into its small size and provides both position and orientation data, at speeds up to 240 Hz (frames of data per second).
