This General-Purpose Accelerometer is a High-Accuracy and Sensitivity Single-Mode Fiber (SM) based FBG based packaged accelerometer for use in environments from -20°C to +80°C.
Available in a wide range of optical specifications. Packaged to eliminate influences from the ambient environment, the patented transducer mechanism yields a high sensitivity to resonance frequency ratio. Ready for direct use in many applications. Calibration service available upon request. The full-scale accuracy, resolution, and precision specifications are guaranteed only when used with FAZ TECHNOLOGY instruments.
The accelerometer uses ultra-precision made FBGs written into the fibers’ core and a patented packaging architecture for producing a transducer configuration that enables measurements to 0 Hz without loss of sensitivity or phase flatness. At 0 Hz the sensor operates as a tilt sensor. The sensor is ROHS, REACH, CE, and ATEX compliant. Other frequency ranges, sensitivities, resolutions, shock levels, and form-factors available, including integrated component packaging for two and three axes accelerometers. Sensor body provides holes for mounting it on any of the three orthogonal axes. Delivered as double-ended connectorized sensors or in ready to install arrays of various lengths and number of sensors. Typical arrays include daisy chaining with other sensors including strain, tilt, and temperature sensors.
