Overview

The A600 range of Solid State MEMS Accelerometers measure vector acceleration with high accuracy using a micromachined (MEMS) silicon sensor incorporating an air damping feature. Unlike fluid damped devices the air damping employed is essentially independent of temperature. The transducer also incorporates positive mechanical stops conferring excellent shock resistance. The accelerometer is compensated for the effects of temperature on both sensitivity and zero. Typical applications include data acquisition systems, crash recorders, fatigue life monitoring and prediction; monitoring and controlling deceleration in mass transit systems; road bed analysis and fault detection equipment for high speed railways; military and civil flight simulators; autopilots and low frequency vibration monitoring.

The A640 series will in many cases replace the now discontinued Series A400 accelerometers and is mechanically inter-changeable.
