General Purpose Single Axis Accelerometers

Motion of a rigid body can be characterized within six degrees of freedom. Providing mechanical excitation to simulate this motion as may be encountered in the real world can entail a variety of test machines. There are various pound/force vibration shakers for structural testing. Regardless of the apparatus, the goal is always to ensure that the product under test can adequately perform, and reliably survive, in the environment in which it will be deployed, or to which it will be exposed during transport. PCB® accelerometers provide the measurement signals needed to control the vibratory input and to analyze the product’s reaction to such testing. Did the test achieve the acceleration amplitudes and frequencies desired? Did the product react in a consistent manner? Did any components or mounting techniques become altered? These are just a few of the questions that can be verified by analyzing the signals generated by PCB® accelerometers.
