      Purpose: To summarize in simple steps the process to setup up the MDC tool to be used for calibrating for magnetic field interference with the OS3D-FG.

      Step 1. First, you should set the COM port number to which your OS3D-FG sensor is connected to by modifying the file: inertiallabs_sdk_lite.ini located in the SDK folder inside the included flash drive (IL_SDK → inertiallabs_sdk_lite.ini). For that, simply open it in a text editor and specify the COM port number in line #15.
      Then, save the file and close it.

      Purpose: The Inertial Labs INS has five methods of hard and soft iron calibrations for heading calculations.


      1. 3D Calibration
      Application: The 3D calibration is designed for carrier objects (typically aerial, or marine) that can operate in full heading, pitch and roll ranges. A possible application using this calibration method is bathymetric surveillance.
