4201 Motorsport DC Accelerometer

Silicon MEMS signal conditioned accelerometer with low-pass filter designed for motorsport racing, engine testing, road vehicle testing, low frequency measurements

About the 4201 Motorsport DC Accelerometer

The Model 4201 single axis accelerometer is designed with performance and reliability in mind. The rugged, gas damped accelerometer is ideally tailored for motorsport applications and road vehicle testing. The model 4201 features an 8-pole low-pass filter to ensure no high frequency engine noise will leak into the passband. A heavy-duty shielded cable and an EMI/RFI module protects the accelerometer from the harsh operating environment. Available in ranges from ±6g to ±50g, the model 4201 will provide reliable measurements from -40°C to +125°C
