Bestech Australia introduce the A30 MEMS high performance single-axis accelerometer from Gladiator Technologies. The accelerometer is designed for:
- Seismic monitoring
- Automotive testing
- Commercial aircraft applications
- Platform and antenna stabilisation and pointing
- General aviation
- Laboratory use
The A30 single axis accelerometer has a bias of less than 1mg and one-year composite repeatability of less than 2.5mg. Standard input g ranges of ±1.7g, ±6g and ±12g are also offered. The typical power consumption of this accelerometer is 5mA, running on standard 5V DC power.
The A30 single-axis accelerometer is durable and can withstand vibrations and shocks associated with commercial aircraft requirements. The A30 single-axis accelerometer can operate in environments of 6g RMS vibration and 500g shock along any axis. The unit does not have any inherent wear, giving it a long operating life.
The physical weight of the A30 single-axis accelerometer is less than 10 grams and it is cased in anodised aluminium housing.
Features of the A30 single-axis accelerometer include:
- Low bias
- Low power
- Light weight
- Voltage output
- Internal temperature sensor
- Rugged durability
- Long life
