MEMSIC Releases New Whitepaper on High Vibration Applications

April 27, 2016

Design engineers involved in the development of heavy equipment that operate in high shock and vibration environments need to make some choices regarding the type of accelerometer that is used to measure inclination. In equipment such as tractors, cranes, wood chippers, and construction equipment, designers use accelerometers to measure pitch and roll using two (2D) or three orthogonal (3D) axes.

In most cases, equipment designers have a choice between capacitive-based or thermal MEMS (microelectromechanical) accelerometers. To select the right accelerometer for the application, they need to consider several design variables, including sensor structure, sensor resonance, reliability, stability, bandwidth, and power consumption, together with cost.
