Selecting an acceleration sensor for high vibration.

MEMSIC has a new whitepaper for heavy equipment design engineers and developers who need to pick the right kind of acceleration sensors.

This new MEMSIC whitepaper discusses various uses for accelerometers used in construction, testing and transportation equipment. 

This whitepaper provides an in-depth analysis of Capacitive and Thermal Accelerometers as well as the differences between these two leading accelerometer technologies; as well as their benefits and advantages.  The paper covers how these two technologies impact device sensitivity, resistance to shock and vibration, and overall performance in demanding real world industrial and construction environments.

“Equipment designers have a choice between capacitive-based or thermal MEMS (microelectromechanical) accelerometers,” explains James Fennelly, MEMSIC product manager. “They need to consider several design variables, including sensor structure, sensor resonance, reliability, stability, bandwidth, and power consumption, together with cost.”
