MEMS-based accelerometer for extreme-temperature industrial applications introduced by Analog Devices

NORWOOD, Mass., 24 May 2011. Analog Devices Inc. in Norwood, Mass., is introducing the ADXL206 precise, low power, dual-axis iMEMS accelerometer for extreme-high-temperature industrial applications such as down-hole oil drilling tools. The accelerometer, which has signal conditioned analog voltage outputs, is a single-chip device that measures acceleration with plus-or-minus 5 G, and measures dynamic acceleration such as tilt and static acceleration such as gravity.

NORWOOD, Mass., 24 May 2011. Analog Devices Inc. in Norwood, Mass., is introducing the ADXL206 precise, low power, dual-axis iMEMS accelerometer for extreme-high-temperature industrial applications such as down-hole oil drilling tools.The MEMS-based accelerometer, which has signal conditioned analog voltage outputs, is a single-chip device that measures acceleration with plus-or-minus 5 G, and measures dynamic acceleration such as tilt and static acceleration such as gravity.The ADXL206 operates in temperatures from -50 to 175 degrees Celsius has a typical noise floor of 110 µg/vHz, which helps resolve signals below 1 mg, 0.06° of inclination, in tilt sensing applications using bandwidths narrower than 60 Hz).

Users can select bandwidths of 0.5 Hz to 2.5 kHz, depending on the application. The ADXL206 is available in a 13-by-8-by-2-millimeter eight-lead side-brazed ceramic dual in-line package. For more information contact Analog Devices online at www.analog.com.
