Accelerometer

Precision sensors providing a complete ready to go solution for measurements of acceleration in 3 axes.

The sensors are focused to the needs of the researcher with high precision yet ease of use in mind. Designed for general research applications in the fields of medicine, industrial ergonomics and sports science, the accelerometers when combined with the versatility of the Biometrics' DataLINK or DataLOG data acquisition systems make an ideal research and teaching tool.

Full Specifications

There are two model options - the ACL300 (range ± 10G) and the S3-1000G-HA (range ± 1000G).

By simply plugging either accelerometer model into the Biometrics' DataLOG or DataLINK instruments, accelerations may be displayed and analyzed in units of G or m/s2

The small lightweight 'active' head may be mounted practically anywhere using double sided adhesive tape, or held securely in place using a mechanical clamp for higher loading.

There is no need to calibrate either model as this is done during manufacture. They are ready to go giving accurate readings for both static and dynamic applications.

The ACL300 will measure both dynamic acceleration (i.e. vibration) and static acceleration (i.e. gravity). It is ideal for multiple research applications as it comes with selectable low pass filter settings standard at 100Hz, 500Hz and 1000Hz. We are pleased to produce custom units with different combinations of low pass filter settings at your request.

  • 3 independent axes - X, Y, Z
  • Variable full scale measuring range (adjusted within DataLINK or DataLOG management software, 100%, 30% or 10% of full scale)
  • 3 levels of adjustable frequency response
  • 8th order anti-aliasing filter on each channel with user selectable corner frequencies
  • Low impedance outputs for excellent noise performance
  • Non critical input power requirements
  • Electronic calibration adjustments giving high stability under vibration and over time
  • Signal conditioning electronics housed in a separate small enclosure allowing for miniaturization of the accelerometer probe
  • Easy interface to many other data acquisition systems
