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.

Bandwidth Limiting (Cut-Off) Filters
Each channel of both models of accelerometer are fitted with an 8th order 1.2 elliptic filter with user selectable cut-off frequencies. This provides the optimum compromise between pass-band ripple and roll-off steepness; 60 dB of rejection is achieved at 1.2 times the selected corner frequency. The filter on the ACL300 has 3 values, and the filter on the S3-1000G-HA has 5 values. These are selected by positioning a simple switch within the accelerometer interface unit.
The following table shows the possible set corner frequencies and the recommended sampling frequency set within the DataLINK or DataLOG to avoid anti aliasing according to the Nyquist Sampling Theorem.
|Bandwidth||Minimum Sampling Frequency
per channel of DataLINK or DataLOG
|ACL300||DC to 100Hz||200Hz|
|DC to 500Hz||1000Hz|
|DC to 1000Hz||2500Hz|
|S3-1000G-HA||DC to 312Hz||1000Hz|
|DC to 625Hz||1250Hz|
|DC to 1250Hz||2500Hz|
|DC to 2500Hz||5000Hz|
|DC to 5000Hz||10000Hz|
For a particular corner frequency it is possible to sample at rates higher than those recommended above but nothing will be gained due to the frequency limit. Using frequencies lower than those shown above is NOT recommended as the recorded waveforms will be distorted due to aliasing.
