Dynamic Vibration Sensor Easily Connects via USB to Smart Phones, Tablets and PCs
Press release date: August 20, 2014
Making vibration measurements is now as easy as recording digital audio. This simplicity provides the utility of precision piezoelectric accelerometers while acting as a high-fidelity tool for both the test and industrial markets. Users can select from a growing number of third-party vibration analysis packages on all popular platforms or write their own applications in any programming environment that can access the audio input driver such as MathWorks MATLAB® or National Instruments LabVIEW®.
By pairing the 333D01 with a smart phone, a user no longer needs separate and cumbersome signal conditioners or dedicated digital data acquisition. A powerful vibration analysis system has never been smaller.
Utilizing a hermetically sealed precision ceramic piezoelectric single-axis sensing element expands both the measurement resolution (additional 66 dB over typical MEMS accelerometers) and useable frequency range to 8 kHz (nearly eight times typical MEMS response). The 333D01 packages both the piezoelectric sensing element and internal electronics within a laser welded, ground isolated, stainless steel casing. This provides durability, portability and reliability for the entire measurement channel in both factory and laboratory environments.
The calibration of a USB ICPDigital™ Dynamic Accelerometer is NIST traceable, ensuring the precision of the integrated measurement channel. Calibration data is stored in the sensor allowing optimized software to provide calibrated engineering units with no user involvement.
The USB ICPDigital™ Dynamic Accelerometer simplifies and improves the general accessibility to precision vibration measurements through the ease and simplicity of the consumer USB communication world. It expands beyond traditional piezoelectric accelerometer applications opening the vibration world to laptop, tablet and smart phone vibration applications.
