Choosing The Proper Accelerometer For Measurement Success And Sanity from Sensors | Online Selecting the correct accelerometer technology for a measurement application is vitally important for obtaining accurate results. Your measurement results are only as good as your accelerometer selection criteria. In this article, we look at the different types of accelerometers available on the market, and the considerations around each type.   BASIC ACCELEROMETER TYPES In broad terms, accelerometers are classified into two categories: AC-RESPONSE and DC-RESPONSE. An AC-response accelerometer, as the name implies, is a sensor which hasRead More
Introducing the SGX SensorTech EC410 Electrochemical Oxygen Sensor SGX electrochemical sensors detect gases by producing a chemical reaction between the gas and oxygen contained in the sensor. This reaction produces a small current, which is proportional to the concentration of the gas present. The sensor is, in effect, a type of fuel cell, hence all electrochemical oxygen sensors are of the self-powered, diffusion limited, metal-air battery type, comprising an anode, a semi-solid electrolyte paste and an air cathode. The cell comprises an enclosure containing two electrodes, a flat PTFE tapeRead More
