...cost only about $50, but cannot handle certain kinds of applications. In fact, choosing an accelerometer sometimes can be harder than using one. One of the more common accelerometers is called a suspended-mass type. Suspended-mass accelerometers are characterized by their small size (solid-state...

Suggestions on how to use accelerometers across a wide variety of applications....

The various noise sources of piezoelectric transducers connected to preamplifiers are discussed. Low level, low frequency measurements are limited by the electromechanical efficiency of the piezoelectric material used in the accelerometer and the characteristics of the preamplifier. Noise...

Accelerometers with integrated amplifiers are a popular alternative to those requiring external. charge amplifiers. SigLab's top hatch access to the input signal conditioning circuitry makes. building an internal accelerometer interface easy. This note describes a method of. constructing...

The classic Piezoelectric Accelerometer is the most commonly used transducer in the vibration world today. These accelerometers are inexpensive, come in a variety of packages, and easy/forgiving to use. Learn more about the basics of these sensors here......

This paper is written as an overview on low-noise piezoelectric accelerometers and will review when and where low-noise devices are needed as well as the engineering tradeoffs made during the design of the device. Noise can be defined as any undesired signal. This paper will limit the discussion...

Although everyone would like them to be, sensors are not perfect. Understanding the accelerometer's errors is just as important as understanding how the accelerometer works in an application. Errors can and will affect the application's performance. This application note explains the sources...

Summary of accelerometers available for safety test applications in a laboratory environment....

Dytran charge mode accelerometers are designed to measure shock and vibration phenomena over a broad temperature range. These accelerometers, unlike the Low Impedance Voltage Mode (LIVM) types, contain no built-in amplifiers. Dytran's charge mode accelerometers utilize high sensitivity piezoceramic...

The customer's Automated Accelerometer Calibration System provides NIST traceable calibration of most accelerometer types, whether self-generating piezo-electric or accelerometers requiring current or voltage excitation. The output of the accelerometer can be charge or voltage, single- ended...
