PHOENIX - Honeywell has announced a new accelerometer - its MV60 micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) - which is designed for aerospace and defense but also has potential uses for industrial and marine applications that require high-precision, navigation-grade accelerometers that are small, lightweight and require little power to operate.
The MV60 measures the acceleration experienced by an object during movement. These types of high-accuracy sensors are mainly used in inertial measurement units and navigation systems deployed on land, air, and sea vehicles to measure velocity. Additionally, inertial systems provide key orientation information for drilling operations; precision pointing and altitude determination for vehicles; platform stabilization; and target location and surveying.
The Honeywell MV60 accelerometer features a compact footprint of only 1.2 square inches and has shock survivability of up to 5,000 g (g-force). It also offers bandwidth of greater than 300 Hz.
Accelerometers are critical elements of navigation systems, and Honeywell provides a portfolio of precision accelerometers that delivers reliable performance at affordable prices to meet customer needs. For more information, please visit https://www.honeywell.com/us/en.
