The AKA-300 Series Accelerometer is based on silicon micro-machined MEMS capacitive technology and designed for low power and high stability in harsh environments. With a triaxial configuration and up to 725 Hz bandwidth, the AKA series is excellent for use in in a range of applications such as tower cranes, wind power monitoring, low frequency vibration measurements, and vehicle testing.
AKA series accelerometers include MEMS technology designed to measure linear acceleration with ranges of ±2g to ±40g with an analog output. MEMS is a chip-based technology which is composed of a suspended mass between a pair of capacitive plates. When motion is applied to the sensor, the suspended mass creates a difference in electric potential. The difference is measured as a change in capacitance. MEMS sensors are a compact component with an IP67 seal which allows them to withstand intense conditions.
Other applications for the AKA-300 series accelerometer include:
