Acceleration – Accelerometer


Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 9.55.53 amWhen measuring vibrations, a piezoelectric accelerometer is sometimes easier to mount on sensitive equipment. It is also smaller than a geophone and not sensitive to the orientation. Accelerometers can also be used to measure much higher levels of vibration compared to geophones.


Screen Shot 2016-04-09 at 6.49.15 pmThis extremely small accelerometer was developed for vibration monitoring of sensitive equipment. It is much smaller and lighter than a geophone and insensitive to magnetic interference. Typical applications are sensitive items like sculptures, paintings in churches and old buildings. It is possible to measure acceleration or particle velocity
