Accelerometers

Accelerometer Enquiries

The Accelerometers (acceleration sensors)  measure acceleration in one, two or three axes. These acceleration sensors (Accelerometers) are based on robust MEMS technology. Thanks to the modular design, it is easy to adapt to specific requirements and due to a higher bandwidth, faster movements can be measured with very high accuracy.

Accelerometer Functions
Measurement of acceleration and vibration, active vibration damping, transport monitoring.

Accelerometer Applications
Agricultural machinery, wind mills, containers.

Accelerometer Application Example
Modern wind turbines are required by law to use accelerometers to monitor swaying of the mast due to wind and (offshore) wave action. When these sensors measure values that exceed a certain threshold, a signal is given to ‘feather’ the blades, putting the wind turbine into a safe state.

These acceleration sensors provide added value to turbine producers in the area of customer-specific filtering and safety circuit interfacing.

CANopen safety Accelerometer for safety applications
These safety sensors offers various inclinometers and accelerometers that are certified compliant with SIL2 (IEC 62061) and PLd (as per EN ISO 13849).

This certification makes these sensors suitable for use in safety applications. The safety sensors are available in both the standard QG65 reinforced plastic housing and the QG76 stainless steel housing.
