Many electrolytic sensors are placed in areas with extreme environmental conditions. These can be extreme cold when tracking a glacier or extreme heat when measuring the smallest vibration of a volcano. These temperature changes will alter the characteristics of your sensor as the metals expand and contract, ultimately affecting the output and accuracy of the sensor. Read more...

Users of force balance inclinometers and tilt sensors can often see high noise in the field. Understanding the device is critical to solving the problem. A force balance inclinometer, or tilt sensor, is a high resolution, extremely accurate force balance accelerometer which is responding to the acceleration of Earth’s gravity to determine the angle of tilt.

Engineers often need sensors that can make crucial, minuscule measurements within some of the harshest environments. Many projects expose sensors to temperatures as high as +180° C and as low as -55° C. There’s not much you can do about the weather and temperature of your application’s environment, but you can find the right sensor to hold up to the elements. Read more...
