Accelerometers measure the acceleration or vibration of a device or system. TE Connectivity (TE) has long standing experience in the design and manufacture of accelerometers based on our proprietary Micro-electro-mechanical System (MEMS), bonded gage and piezoelectric ceramic/film technologies.
Types of Accelerometers
Voltage mode piezoelectric is the most popular accelerometer design due to its high level output and wide bandwidth. We offer voltage mode accelerometers in the traditional 3-wire or 2-wire (IEPE) configurations. Charge-mode piezoelectric accelerometers measure shock and vibration in high temperature environments. In addition to its high temperature operating capability when used with a high quality charge amplifier, a charge mode accelerometer offers dynamic range scalability. To measure motion (velocity, displacement) accurately, an accelerometer with DC response is required. Incorporating MEMS technologies and the latest analog and digital ASICs, our DC accelerometers offer high performance and exceptional value. All products are EAR99 and RoHS compliant.
