Price Guide: POA

These accelerometers are integrated for use in zero to medium frequency instrumentation applications at a low-cost. Each miniature, hermetically sealed package combines a micro-machined capacitive sense element and a custom integrated circuit that includes a sense amplifier and sigma-delta A/D converter.

The Model 1010 digital accelerometer operates by producing a digital pulse train in which the density of pulses (pulses per second) is proportional to applied acceleration. The accelerometer is fully calibrated; nitrogen damped and responds to DC and AC acceleration. It has an easy interface to microprocessors and good resistance to electro-magnetic interference.

Other analog models are available with measuring ranges varying from ±2g to ±400g. These devices can survive a 2000-5000g shock for 0.1ms. Non-linearity is typically 0.15-0.7 per cent of the span. The operating temperature of the unit is -55 to 125°C, and the accelerometer is relatively insensitive to temperature changes and gradients.

Applications for these low weight 0.62 grams accelerometers provided by Bestech Australia include air bags, active suspension, vibration monitoring and analysis, robotics and crash testing.
