Measurement Specialties introduces rugged MEMS accelerometers

February 12, 2008 — Measurement Specialties has introduced its model 3801A and 4801A hermetically sealed MEMS accelerometers meant for harsh environments.

The accelerometers incorporate gas-damped MEMS sensing elements that are ideal for wide frequency response, the company said in a news release. The MEMS devices are offered in ranges from ±2g to ±2000g, making it suitable for both low-level measurements and high-end transient shock measurements.

Integral over-range stops designed into the MEMS sensing element provide shock protection to over 10,000g’s without affecting the unit calibration.
