Product Announcement from Colibrys
Variable capacitance sensors can advantageously replace traditional piezo-resistive products in many specific applications. For a given acceleration range and bandwidth, the capacitive sensor offers a lower noise floor and significantly better stability performance over time and over temperature.
Colibrys variable capacitance sensors are used extensively in a wide range of markets & applications such as:
Military/Aerospace: Flutter testing, HUMS (health and usage monitoring system), launch testing, modal testing, weapon handling monitoring, landing gear, wind tunnel and more.
- Test, measurement and R&D
- Crash testing, ground vibration testing (GVT), road response, quality assurance, modal analysis and more.
Vibration monitoring and control: Train and railway monitoring and testing, transportation, structure monitoring, vibration stress screaning, homeland security, low frequency machinery and more.
Energy (oil & gas): Platform monitoring, HUMS, structural monitoring, pipeline monitoring, downhole vibration monitoring, pipeline health and structure integrity monitoring, wind turbines and more.
Colibrys' VS9000 accelerometers are optimized for vibration sensing applications.
