Whenever it is important to learn about the status of buildings or facilities, inertial sensors can be used. High precision inertial sensors allow the monitoring of structural changes, damage, critical stress conditions and the diagnosis of the state of the material in a very early phase before real damage happens. Therefore inertial sensors can increase safety and save costs.
This presentation is about the highly accurate capacitive silicon inertial sensors from First Sensor for the measurement of inclination, acceleration and vibration. The sensors consist of a silicon sensor element manufactured according to patented micromechanical technology combined with ASIC signal processing in a hermetically sealed SMD housing. Depending on the bandwidth, the inertial sensors reach resolutions of 10 μg or 0.0005° (2 arcsec) and can be adapted both mechanically and electrically to the respective customer application. In addition, evaluation kits are available for easy and fast testing and configuration of the sensors.
