3D Accelerometer

 

ACC-2x is a complete 3-axis accelerometer. It measures acceleration with a nominal full-scale range of +/- 2 g. It can measure the static acceleration of gravity in tilt-sensing applications, as well as dynamic acceleration, resulting from motion, shock, or vibration. It can measure the acceleration in three dimensions (3 axes) independently of each other. It is compatible with any PC-based data acquisition (DAQ) systems due to its analog voltage outputs.

 

In this description, in connection with the 3D Accelerometer, unit of measure g means the standard gravitational acceleration (9.80665 m/s2)

 

The sensor of the ACC-2x Accelerometer is extremely small. This advantageous feature allows you to connect it to any target to be measured without disturbing the original vibration situation. Despite the high sensitivity of the sensor (0.001 g of resolution), it can survive 10,000 g of shock overload.

ACC-2x Accelerometer has:

    - Extremely high sensitivity

    - Excellent linearity

    - Superb temperature stability

    - Wide bandwidth (fast recording speed)

    - Very good long-term stability

 

There are several typical application fields of ACC-2x Accelerometer:

    - The measurable acceleration range is wide enough to cover every biological research and diagnostic application

    - It is an ideal tool for measuring of vibration in general

    - A unique application field is the high-end microscopy and evaluation of the vibration isolation attempts and solutions

 

The most important biological applications of ACC-2x Accelerometer are:

    - Research of neurodegenerative diseases

    - Diagnostic measurements of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease

    - Quantitative evaluation of cognitive functions
