These piezoresistive accelerometers are based proven MEMS technology, in which four variable resistors are configured as a Wheatstone bridge. The uniaxial ASC 62C1 features a wide dynamic range from 0 Hz to 2.5 kHz and outstanding impact resistance up to 5,000 g. In addition, the lightweight design allows its use in applications where the mass load of the test structures has to be minimized.
The accelerometers feature a lightweight, reliable aluminum housing with protection class IP67 and an integrated cable with configurable length and connectors.
Piezoresistive accelerometers are used in high-impact and shock applications such as side and frontal impact tests in the automotive sector. With a measuring range of up to 2,000 g they therefore belong to the category of ASC crash sensors, which can be configured with TEDS and EQX data.
