How to Effectively Mount Accelerometers

An appropriate coupling between the accelerometer and the system it is monitoring is essential for accurate measurements. Engineers use different methods for mounting MEMS accelerometers, and this affects their frequency response. The resonance of the mounting fixture plays an important role, as it can introduce an error in the measurement. Accelerometers using MEMS sensors typically use a printed circuit board or PCB for mounting the sensor, and there may also be other mechanical interfaces Read more [...]

Condition Monitoring with MEMS Accelerometers

In the market today, several condition-monitoring products are available as easy to deploy and highly integrated devices. A vast majority of them contain a microelectromechanical system or MEMS accelerometer as their core sensor. Not only are these economical, they also help in reducing the cost of deployment and ownership. In turn, this expands the facilities and the number of equipment benefitting from a condition monitoring program.
Compared to the legacy mechanical sensors, solid state MEMS Read more [...]
