The Model 5150 Series of surface-mount, variable-capacitive accelerometers offers general-purpose vibration measurements for a variety of aerospace, automotive, energy, industrial manufacturing, oil-and-gas, and testing and measurement applications. Design of the Model 5150 Series incorporates a micromachined variable-capacitive sensing element and custom integrated circuit. The accelerometer produces two analog voltages, which vary proportionally according to measured acceleration levels. The devices are both nitrogen-damped and hermetically sealed. — Silicon Designs, Inc., Kirkland, Wash.
