Silicon Designs' model 2266 high-precision accelerometer come with
a simple four-wire snap-in removable connector, designed to allow users
the added ability to exchange, move, reposition, and replace
accelerometers within a given test setup.
The model 2266 is expressly tailored for zero-to-medium frequency
applications and offers integral amplification and high-drive, low
impedance buffering for precision measurements. The accelerometer
produces two analog voltage outputs and supports both single ended and
differential modes. Signal outputs are fully differential about a 2.5V
common mode voltage. Sensitivity is independent from the supply voltage
of +8 to +32V. At zero acceleration, the output differential voltage is
nominally 0 VDC; at full scale acceleration, the output differential
voltage is ±4 VDC.
The sensors feature on-board voltage regulation and an internal
voltage reference which eliminates precision power supply requirements.
The sensor is relatively insensitive to temperature changes and thermal
gradients. Self-calibration is quick and easy. Within standard range (2 g
to 400 g), most accelerometers continue to operate after sustained
exposures of up to 10K g shock and with limited exposure to temperatures
above +200°C. Carefully regulated manufacturing processes ensure that
each sensor is made to be virtually identical, allowing users to swap
out modules with minimal modifications.
The low-impedance outputs of the Silicon Designs model 2266 will
drive more than 100 meters of cable, with an overall flexibility that
allows them to be used within a wider variety of applications without
having to undo any wiring or replace cables.
