These piezoresistive accelerometers are based proven MEMS technology, in which four variable resistors are configured as a Wheatstone bridge. The triaxial ASC 74C1 features a wide dynamic range from 0 Hz to 2.5 kHz and outstanding impact resistance up to 5,000 g. In addition, ASC is able to repair single sensitve directions if it is required.
The accelerometers feature a lightweight, reliable aluminum housing with protection class IP65 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.
