Motion Sensors, Inc. Announces Vibration Testing Capability

ELIZABETH CITY, NC, February 24, 2009 - Motion Sensors, Inc. announces new in-house capability to provide the environmental conditions present across a wide variety of industries, including military and aerospace, rail and transit, on-vehicle applications, and flow control. Please refer to for additional information.

The Unholtz-Dickie Model T110 shaker will be utilized for product development and production of speed sensors. The UD-T110 has a 600 force-lbs., Sine/500 force-lbs. random force rating with 20g acceleration. It is capable of testing small to medium size payloads over the frequency range from 2Hz to 3000Hz and higher.

"Having in-house testing capabilities enhances Motion Sensors' ability to optimize speed sensor design for the most harsh environments," said Marcy Bergman, President. "Our products are used across a wide variety of industries and applications where speed sensing must be conducted in extremely vibration intensive environments. Research and development efforts to enhance product life in these applications will be of enormous benefit to our customers".

Motion Sensors, Inc. has provided speed sensors for severe and demanding environments since its inception in 1970. Its speed sensor technologies include variable reluctance sensors, hall effect sensors, RF (eddy current) sensors, magnetoresistive sensors, and amplified sensors that combine the preamplifier within the speed sensor housing.

Additional detail can be found on the Motion Sensors, Inc. website at Motion Sensors' focus is on providing sensors that are customized to specific application requirements for low to medium volume applications. Speed sensor capabilities include wide temperature ranges (-450 to 1000°F), hermetic sealing, and offerings for intrinsic safety certified to the most stringent environments (ATEX and CSA).
