Sherborne Sensors, a world leading company in the design and manufacture of superior precision accelerometers, inclinometers and force transducers, today launched its A545 range of highly accurate and robust multi-axis linear accelerometers.
The A545 range of multi-axis accelerometers measure vector acceleration and are available in either bi or tri-axial variants. Highly accurate piezo-resistive strain gauge technology is utilised which, unlike fluid damped devices, employs air damping so that accuracy remains essentially independent of temperature.
The transducer has been engineered for harsh environments and is packaged in a robust aluminium alloy housing incorporating positive mechanical stops that confer excellent shock resistance and overload protection. It is also fully compensated for the effects of temperature on both sensitivity and zero outputs.
Typical applications include biomechanical investigations, data acquisition systems and more severe uses such as crash test, impact, shock and vibration analysis. Acceleration ranges are from ± 2 to ±500g and for customers with specific applications, the accelerometers can be supplied with different acceleration ranges in each axis, for example ±2g in the X axis and ±5g in the Y axis.
