Vibration Sensing

Accelerometers are used to measure vibration in engineering units of acceleration ('G' unit), where 1 g = 9.81 m/s2. They can be used in order to measure vibration in vehicles, machines, buildings, seismic activity, etc..

Applications of Accelerometer:

  • Machine Condition Monitoring
  • Modal Analysis
  • Hammer Impact Test
  • Balancing
  • Structural Health Monitoring
  • Seismic & Earthquake Monitoring
  • Product Shock/Drop Test
  • Aerospace/Flight Test Analysis
  • Shock Blast Testing
  • Vehicle Crash Test
  • Vehicle Human Comfort Test
  • NVH Testing
  • Transportation/Shipment Shock Detector
