Abstract:

The methods are described by which a GG87B wideangle miniature integrating gyro was altered to include a spin-motor rotation monitoring device. Test data from the evaluation program are also included. The spin-motor running detector addition consists of 4 permanent magnets embedded in the spin-motor momentum ring and 2 wire-wound coils on the gyro case. The system is designed to produce a sine wave output of 2 cycles per motor revolution, or 800 cps. The amplitude of the 800-cycle signal produced by this gyro was 600 millivolts rms into a 10,000ohm resistive load. The gyro was given the customary performance tests and met all the requirements.
