About This Item
This specification defines the requirements for a single-degree-of-freedom rate-integrating gyro to be used as a sensor in [an attitude control system, a gimbal platform, an angular displacement measuring system, an angular rate measuring system, _________________________.] The external electronics or control system are not considered to be part of the gyro.
This standard is consists of two parts. Part I is a specification format guide for the preparation of a rate-integrating gyro specification. It provides a common meeting ground of terminology and practice for manufacturers and users. The user is cautioned not to over specify; only those parameters that are required to guarantee proper instrument performance in the specific application should be controlled. In general, the specification should contain only those requirements that can be verified by test or inspection. Parameters in addition to those given in this standard are not precluded. Figs 1 and 2 are to be used as a guide for the preparation of specific figures or drawings. Part II is a compilation of recommended procedures for testing a rate-integrating gyro. These procedures, including test conditions to be considered, are derived from those currently in use. For a specific application, the test procedure should reflect the requirements of the specifications; thereefore, not all tests outlined in this document need be included, nor are additional tests precluded. In some cases, alternative methods for measuring performance characteristics have been included or indicated.
New IEEE Standard - Active. A specification format guide for the preparation of a rate-integrating gyro specification that provides a common meeting ground of terminology and practice for manufacturers and users is presented. A compilation of recommended procedures for testing a rate-integrating gyro is given. An errata is available at http://standards.ieee.org/reading/ieee/updates/errata/517-1974_errata.pdf
