New MS7000 MEMS Capacitive Accelerometers.
Colibrys announces the availability of their new MS7000
MEMS capacitive accelerometer.
Customers with Guidance and Inertial Navigation
applications that critically rely on bias stability under
extreme operational conditions can find today the
accelerometer they have been looking for.
This product has been designed mainly for Guidance and
Navigation applications but the benefits of bulk capacitive
micro-machined technology make it also ideal for a wide
range of other industrial applications. For Defense and
Aerospace markets, where high stability, high-g range, low
noise, low temperature drift and high shock tolerance are
important, the MS1000 is considered as a best in class,
combining low cost with high performance. Transportation
users as well as Instrumentation applications mainly require
low temperature drift, high shock resistance features, and
low power consumption. Finally Tilt and Drilling applications
will mainly consider the operating temperature range and
the compatibility to harsh environment as the major advantage.
The Colibrys MS7000 is the latest product from the already
highly successful MS6000 family. It is composed of three
components mounted on a hybrid subrate and packaged
in a standard 108 housing. The main component is the in
house manufactured bulk micro-machined capacitive sensor
mechanism. The low power signal conditioning IC translates
the sensor capacitance variation into an analog output voltage.
Finally, during the pre-calibration of each individual product,
calibration data is stored in the microcontroller.
The major advantages of the products are:
* Typical bias long-term stability less than 0.1% of full-scale g-range
* Bias temperature coefficient typically below 200 mg/°C
* Scale factor temperature coefficient less than 200 ppml°C
The MS7000 is low power with a typical operating current
consumption of less than 200mA @ 3VDC. It has been
demonstrated to survive shock levels of 6000g.
The robust design and rigorous quality assurance guarantee
the superior reliability of the MS7000 MEMS accelerometer.
Beside a range of standard products (±2g - MS7002 and
±10g -MS7010), available through our exclusive distributors,
Colibrys has the experience and flexibility to offer a wide
range of custom products upon request. Customized variables
include the packaging, the performances as well as the full
scale g-range of the products, which can varyfrom ± 1g to± 100g.
