The uses for MEMS capacitive accelerometers with a DC response from ASC include driving dynamic applications like lane-change tests, braking tests and driving manoeuvre tests. ASC sensors are durable, low-noise and exceptionally accurate as well as having compact dimensions.
ASC sensors with protection classes IP67 and IP68 can handle even the harshest natural elements such as cold, heat, humidity and dust in their stride. Both the ASC 4411LN and ASC 5525MF models as well as the hermetically sealed OS-115LN sensor are ideal in this context.
When measuring vehicle acceleration and angular speeds, as required for road vehicle studies, the ASC IMU 7.x.y is a preferred choice as a 6-DOF inertial sensor. Its low weight and ultra-compact structure make the ASC IMU 7.x.y an ideal choice for R&D braking and vehicle tests. With the IMU 7.x.y, ASC offers a unique modular system, allowing a customised configuration to meet an individual requirement. When it comes to measuring acceleration, there is a choice between the ASC LN series and ASC MF series with a measuring range of ± 2g to ± 50g as well as a turning range of ± 75 °/s to ± 900 °/s.
The gyroscopes (angular rate sensors) ASC 271 and ASC 273 are installed in dynamic gear – and roller shutter measurements, position and motion measurements as well as slippage tests: applications requiring outstanding bias stability and low g sensitivity.
