Any item can experience physical acceleration due to automatic excitation and inertial forces, which can be controlled using an accelerometer. In order to establish an object’s position in space and track its movement, an accelerometer measures the acceleration forces acting on the object. For rotating machinery with rolling bearings, industrial accelerometers are the principal vibration sensors needed.
Crushers, gearboxes, conveyors, belts, pumps, elevators, blowers, and other equipment employ industrial accelerometers in a variety of applications.
The MV60 micro-electro-mechanical system accelerometer is designed for aerospace and defence but also has potential uses for industrial and marine applications that call for high-precision, navigation-grade accelerometers that are small, lightweight, and consume little power to operate. It was recently unveiled by Honeywell.
In order to provide simultaneous measurement in three axes, Hansford Sensor has introduced a new high performance triaxial vibration sensor. The new industrial accelerometer, known as the HS-173R, was created especially for use with the most recent generation of route-based and standalone data collectors, which more frequently need multichannel inputs from various permanently or transiently installed sensors.
InnaLabs Control Grade Accelerometers offer exceptional accuracy, reproducibility, and stability even in the roughest settings thanks to their established quartz servo technology. These sensors are the ideal choice for laboratory, industrial, and aerospace applications.
The InvenSense ICM-45xxx SmartMotion ultra-high-performance (UHP) series of 6-axis (6-Axis: 3-Axis Gyroscope + 3-Axis Accelerometer) MEMS motion sensors is now commercially available, according to TDK Corporation. For low-power wake up applications, the product line also includes an ultra-low power accelerometer mode.
The motion sensor needed for today’s wearables and hearables must be able to detect vigorous activity at the lowest potential power level. As a result, the gyroscope and accelerometer must both be turned on, which greatly increases battery usage. By providing the industry’s lowest power-consumption gyroscope, ICM-45xxx closes this gap.
The smallest 3-axis accelerometer in the world, the MSA330, has been released by MEMSensing Microsystems Co., Ltd. and Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC). It makes use of SMIC’s CMOS integrated MEMS device production and TSV-based wafer level packaging technology.
In comparison to the newest commercial solutions, the MSA330 vertically integrates a 3-axis accelerometer device and CMOS ASIC into a single package measuring 1.075×1.075×0.60mm3 (LxWxH). This results in a 30% footprint reduction and a 70% overall size reduction.
Launch of a New MEMS Accelerometer by STMicroelectronics for Automotive Uses. The AIS2IH three-axis linear accelerometer from STMicroelectronics improves mechanical resilience, temperature stability, and resolution for non-safety automotive applications.
The three-axis linear accelerometer AIS2IH from STMicroelectronics is now available for non-safety automotive applications like anti-theft, telematics, infotainment, tilt/inclination measurement, and vehicle navigation.
It offers improved resolution, temperature stability, and mechanical durability. Additionally, it opens the door for brand-new, performance-intensive applications in the industrial, medical, and automotive sectors.
The AIS2IH ensures market-leading durability while delivering high-performance motion sensing throughout a broad -40oC to +115oC operating temperature range by using ST’s leadership positions in both MEMS and automotive technologies.
Additionally, the accelerometer offers extremely low power consumption in a small LGA-12 land grid array packaging at a very affordable cost.
The device enables switching between operating modes instantly to optimise resolution and power consumption for the precise application needs whenever necessary. The device has five operating modes, including one high-performance mode (HPM) and four low-power modes (LPM).
The AIS2IH can meet growing automotive applications including digital drive recorders, driver monitoring, vertical level sensing in vehicle suspension, and door automation because of its expanded operating-temperature range, improved performance, and low cost.
The sensor is particularly appropriate for delicate medical applications like pacemakers that need high resolution, compact size, and uncompromising dependability in the industrial IoT (IIoT) space as well as industrial IoT (IoT) applications like 5G smart antennas.
The new automotive accelerometer from ST is capable of measuring accelerations with output data rates (ODR) programmable in the range of 1.6Hz to 1.6kHz and incorporated digital low-pass and high-pass filters. It features user-selectable complete scales of 2g, 4g, 8g, and 16g. When in high-performance mode, the typical noise density is 90 g/Hz.
Operating currents of 110 A in HPM and 0.67 A in LPM at 1.6 Hz are possible at 3 V. The system-level power consumption is kept within a strict budget thanks in part to the internal 32-level FIFO and the motion- and activity-detection features.
MEMS accelerometers are utilised anywhere it is necessary to quantify linear motion without a fixed reference, such as movement, shock, or vibration. Whatever they are hooked to measures the linear acceleration.
AXO301, a low-noise and high-resolution 1 g accelerometer for high precision acceleration/deceleration measurements in railway applications and inclination control in industrial applications, and AXO305, a 5 g accelerometer designed for navigation, positioning, and motion control of land and marine manned and unmanned systems, are the two new products that TDK Corporation has added to its Tronics AXO300 accelerometers platform.
The accelerometers from the AXO300 platform have a one-year composite bias repeatability of 1 mg and a composite scale factor repeatability of 600 ppm. They are constructed with a cutting-edge closed-loop architecture that provides exceptional linearity and stability even under strong vibrations.
Products from the IISxxx family, which are covered by the ST longevity programme, which ensures manufacturing for at least 10 years after their introduction date, are devices for industrial applications.
Their high-performance sensors produce data with a high frequency sampling rate and extremely low noise levels. For machine condition detection, machine learning, and other industrial applications, this class of accelerometers can be used.Their extremely low power sensors support creative designs.
Their central ECU accelerometers can be employed in the vehicle for both safety-related and non-safety applications. Each accelerometer in the Model 1522 series is manufactured using meticulously controlled techniques to ensure that they are almost similar within a specific g range.
To ensure that they continue to measure accurately and reliably, especially in thermally unstable settings, units are entirely tested, programmed, calibrated, and checked internally in a climate chamber environment. Each accelerometer is provided with an initial test report and is marked with a serial number for traceability. The test report contains the scale factor, bias, and assessed bias.
The global industrial accelerometer market accounted for $XX billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
