Economical Low-g Accelerometer for Low Frequency Applications



Measurement Specialties has introduced the new Model 4000A accelerometer which is an economical signal conditioned accelerometer with integral temperature compensation. The accelerometer incorporates a 3rd generation silicone MEMS sensor providing outstanding performance. The accelerometer is packaged in a rugged aluminum housing ideal for transportation and instrumentation testing. Options are offered for dynamic ranges from 2g to 200g. Operating from 8 to 32 Vdc power supply, the Model 4000A draws a minimal of 5mA of current, while operating over a -20C to +85C temperature range. The underlying MEMS technology and innovative design of the Model 4000A stems from Measurement Specialties, Inc. research and vibration design facilities in Fremont and Aliso Viejo, California.


About Measurement Specialties: Measurement Specialties, Inc. designs and manufactures sensors and sensor-based systems. The Company produces a wide variety of sensors and transducers to measure precise ranges of physical characteristics including pressure, force, vibration, position, humidity, temperature and photo optics.


Measurement Specialties uses multiple advanced technologies including piezoresistive, electro-optic, electro-magnetic, capacitive, application specific integrated circuits (ASICs), micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), piezoelectric polymers and strain gauges to engineer sensors that operate precisely and cost effectively.


The Vibration Design Center in Aliso Viejo, CA spearheads Measurement Specialties' global initiative to expand its accelerometer and vibration sensing business with customers in the automotive, medical, military/aerospace and consumer goods industries. This center builds on the company's platform sensing technologies in silicon MEMS, piezoelectric polymer film, piezoelectric ceramic and bonded gage.
