How to select the right kind of acceleration sensor

MEMSIC has announced a new whitepaper for heavy equipment design engineers and developers who need to pick the right kind of acceleration sensors. The whitepaper discusses various uses for accelerometers used in construction, testing and transportation equipment, offering an in-depth analysis of capacitive and thermal accelerometers, the differences between these two leading accelerometer technologies and their benefits and advantages.

The paper covers how these two technologies impact device sensitivity, resistance to shock and vibration, and overall performance in demanding real world industrial and construction environments.

James Fennelly, Product Manager, MEMSIC, commented: “Equipment designers have a choice between capacitive-based or thermal MEMS accelerometers. They need to consider several design variables, including sensor structure, sensor resonance, reliability, stability, bandwidth and power consumption, together with cost.”
