Acceleration Measurement


The output signal of acceleration sensors quite often have to be enhanced with separate measurement amplifiers for the measurement system. Acceleration sensors with a charge output need to have a very elaborate measurement amplifier that should always be purchased with the sensor. Acceleration sensors on an ICP- or semiconductor-basis can be directly conntected to the measurement systems of BMC Messsysteme GmbH via the measurement amplifiers of the MA- respectively MAL-Series.

This combination of our all-in-one AMS-Series in connection with the NextView-Software is an extremely powerful, flexible and yet very compact system, that leaves no wishes unanswered.

Acceleration is mainly a dynamic signal. Frequencies occur mostly in the range of 100hz ... 50kHz. Acceleration signals can be vibrations, impacts or acustic values. The absolute value of an acceleration is not the only valuable information of a signal. Quite often the frequencies that are enclosed in the signal are most interesting. Here it is extremely important that the used measurement system records the measured data truly equidistant.

For the acquisition of accelerations, sensors with various measurement principles can be used. Miniature sensors mostly are built with piezo-electric sensors or by MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems). Mini sensors with the dimension of just a few grams have measurement ranges of some g up to dozens or even hundreds of g and are resistent to impacts. The resolution reaches 0,01 mg.
