Miniature Accelerometers

Our piezoelectric (PE) Single Axis accelerometers are generally used in applications where size, weight, high sensitivity, and minimal power consumption features are important.

Applications of use include in circuit board testing, small structure testing, drop testing, component, and modal testing.

The Metromatics Series MM261A, MM262A, MM263A, MM264A, and MM266A are PE Single Axis Miniature Accelerometers.  Measuring acceleration or motion along only one axis.  For example, in one of the three dimensions being X-Axis (horizontal), Y-Axis (Vertical) or the Z-Axis (depth).

How PE Single Axis Miniature Accelerometers Operate

The sensing element in them generates a charge in response to acceleration.  The charge is a high impedance output signal.  However, it needs to be converted to a voltage using a charge amplifier (external or Inline Charge Converter). Once signal conversion is complete, signals move to data acquisition systems for further analysis. In addition, the high impedance of the signal can be sensitive to noise and requires careful handling to maintain signal integrity.

This series has a measuring range of 2,000 to 3,000 g/pk.  Along with a frequency range of 8 Hz to 12Hz which captures and measures vibrations and accelerations across a broad spectrum of frequencies.

Secondly, these accelerometer single sensors are made from stainless providing true durability allowing the sensor to operate in conditions from -54 to +150°C.
