ASC DiSens® ECO-3321 (CAN) MEMS Capacitive Accelerometer – Digital Interface
The key components in capacitive accelerometers are high-quality micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). This technology enables the measurement of static (DC) and constant accelerations, which can be used to calculate the velocity and displacement of moving objects. Depending on the design of the spring-mass-damping system, however, it is also possible to detect dynamic (AC) accelerations with amplitudes up to ±40 g and within
a frequency response range of up to 1 kHz (±5 %) or 2.4 kHz (±3 dB).
The digital accelerometers of type ASC DiSens® ECO featuring an extremely robust design which leads to a shock resistance up to 10,000 g. The integrated electronic circuitry enables the digital interfaces CAN as well as a flexible power supply voltage from 5 to 30 VDC. The sensors of the ASC DiSens® ECO series provide already implemented filter settings enabling a sampling rate of up to 4 kHz at a 3dB-corner frequency of 1 kHz. The sensors feature a lightweight, reliable aluminum housing with protection class IP67 and a 5-pin circular metric M12 connector.
The triaxial accelerometers allow quick and easy mounting. Due to several options for digital interfaces and filter settings the ASC DiSens® ECO series is ideally suited for condition monitoring and industrial applications.
