Acceleration sensors | DIS sensors

The QG series of acceleration sensors measure acceleration in 1, 2 or 3 axes. These products are based on robust MEMS technology, in which capacitance differences can be converted into an analogue voltage within a micro-mechanical sensor chip. This analogue voltage is proportional to the acceleration to which the sensor is exposed.

Acceleration Sensors Modular Design

The modular design makes it easy to adapt the sensors to specific requirements. The housing is available in metal (aluminium and stainless steel), as well as in plastic. DIS acceleration sensors have a higher bandwidth than inclination sensors so they can measure faster movements with very high accuracy.

Functions acceleration sensors

Acceleration sensors are used for various applications, such as:

  • Active vibration damping
  • Vibration measurements
  • Transport monitoring
  • Compensation of vibrations at load cells
  • Preventive maintenance
  • Maximum vibration monitoring of wind turbines
  • Applications 

Applications acceleration sensors

The accelerations sensors with robust MEMS technology are perfect to use for:

  • Agricultural machinery
  • Wind mills
  • Containers

The acceleration sensor housing

Many of the acceleration sensors in the QG range use a unique universal plastic housing concept, known as QUADRO®. The advantage is the very compact size, simple installation and the fact that the electronics are fully sealed which provides a high degree of ingress protection (IP67). 

Types of acceleration sensors 

DIS acceleration sensors are available with the following general specifications:
