New single axis accelerometer has wide frequency range

The new MEMS (Micro-Electro Mechanical System) miniature, single axis, capacitive accelerometers have been designed for use in applications in automotive, aerospace, rail and other sectors where challenging environmental conditions may be encountered.

The wide frequency range from DC to 2 kHz and high operating temperature of +125°C combined with six measuring ranges from ±2g to ±200g means that the new accelerometers easily meet the demands of a wide variety of applications.

The sensing element and integral signal amplifier are enclosed in a fully hermetic, lightweight, welded titanium housing with integral ground isolation. A choice of industry standard 4-pin connector or an integral PTFE insulated cable both with temperature output for where external signal compensation is needed. The integrated signal amplifier provides a wide range of industry standard output signal options to interface with most current DAQ systems.

A hard anodised plate on the bottom of the sensor provides ground isolation when using adhesive mounting. For more demanding installations, the sensors are supplied with two screw holes with integral isolation inserts to ensure ground isolation in combination with the hard anodized plate.

The new sensor design is optimized for low frequency applications common to Aviation/Aerospace, Automotive, Civil Engineering Structures, Seismic and other R&D studies, especially where very low frequency measurements need to be made accurately, even under varying temperatures in exposed, outdoor environments.
