We are rather proud that, as a relatively small and still young company, we can already call ourselves the market leader in the key segment of capacitive accelerometers.
It is not without justification that these special sensors are seen as superior in stability, measurement sensitivity, temperature characteristics and power consumption. Because they also precisely measure even small linear accelerations and low-frequency dynamic accelerations, they are very popular in passenger comfort tests on automotive and rail vehicles and in operational measurements (monitoring) for example on bridges and constructions.
Our medium-frequency accelerometers of the MF series offer a very high usable frequency measuring range with simultaneous noise reduction and a particularly high shock resistance and improved temperature characteristics, which is why they are widely used for tests and measurements or monitoring applications in the automotive, wind power and rail vehicle industries.
The unmatched range of high-quality capacitive accelerometers makes it easier for our customers to find the perfect type of sensor for virtually any special application and any measurement range.
ASC provides capacitive accelerometers in three different categories:
Low Noise (LN)
Our low-noise accelerometers have a particularly low noise level. They have a differential output and boast an excellent spectral noise power density, which is particularly important in low-amplitude, low-frequency measurements.
Medium Frequency (MF)
Our MF category accelerometers have the widest frequency response of all ASC capacitive accelerometers. They are best suited for low to medium frequency measurements in harsh environments. ASC’s MF accelerometers have a differential output, are particularly resistant to repetitive hard shocks, work reliably even in higher operating temperature ranges and can work with very low voltages.
Our accelerometers in the standard category have excellent temperature stability, a small temperature coefficient for the zero point and the signal deviation. Furthermore, they are characterised by very low power consumption.
