ASC 76C1 Piezoresistive Accelerometer

Triaxial, small and compact accelerometer for testing light weight structures

About the ASC 76C1 Piezoresistive Accelerometer

The accelerometers are based on an advanced piezoresistive MEMS technology and can be used in a low frequency response up from 0Hz. The piezoresistive sensor element is made of monolithic resistors. These resistors are attached to carrier-elements and are electrically connected in a Wheatstone bridge. The electrical signal changes proportional to the vibration.

The model ASC 76C1 is a triaxial accelerometer based on piezoresistive technology. Each axis is working independently as a 4-wire system. The ASC 76C1 is a small and compact accelerometer. The housing is a flat design in hard anodised aluminium.

The compact cube form facilitates mounting on different sites. Due to their low mass these sensor models are ideal for testing on light-weight structures. The sensing element in the models has integrated overload stops and therefore the silicon chip is highly shock resistant. The sensors have an excellent non-linearity over a wide frequency response. Electrically they are configured as a full Wheatstone bridge.

The models can be obtained with all common sensor ID modules. A very high flexible cable provides a simple mounting. The ASC 76C1 is equipped as standard with 6 meter of rugged Polyurethane cable.
