Accelerometers based on various technologies

Bay SensorTec manufactures accelerometers on the basis of capacitive and piezo-resistive technology. Both technologies exist as uniaxial and triaxial sensors, whereby the capacitive sensors mainly cover small measurement ranges of +/- 1 g to +/- 200 g – temperature-compensated with signal enhancement – and the piezo-resistive sensors are employed with measurement ranges up to +/- 2000 g in crash tests. The measurement principle is a full bridge.
