Vibration Sensor VS1000
SINGLE AXIS ANALOG ACCELEROMETER
VS1000 is a high end capacitive MEMS accelerometer, specially designed for vibration measurements from DC to medium frequencies. Thanks to its low noise, resistance to repetitive high shocks and insensitivity to temperature environments, VS1000 guarantees confident and accurate vibration measurements in rugged environments.
Innovative MEMS architecture and stable IC ensure analogue outputs with an optimal signal-to-noise ratio and non-linearity in a whole bandwidth.
Safran Sensing Technologies Switzerland products are designed and manufactured in Switzerland following state-of-the-art proprietary industrial processes improved over 25 years. Each sensor is fully tested and qualified to company standards.
Field-Proven In Critical Applications
The MS1000, TS1000 and VS1000 series MEMS Accelerometers are field-proven, supporting critical missions across a wide range of industries. Some of the applications include:
Railway Technology – bogie monitoring, rolling stock fatigue analysis;
Test & Measurement – aero flight testing, automotive testing, structure health testing – building, bridge, dam, nuclear plant, pipeline inspections;
Monitoring & Control – drilling equipment stability, telemetry, wind turbine monitoring;
Seismic Class C 90 dB – early earthquake warning system, seismic intensity instrumentation, structural health monitoring
Built-In Self-Test Function
The built-in self-test mode generates a square wave signal on the device outputs (OUTP & OUTN) and can be used for device failure detection. This can be helpful to prevent system faults before they occur.
Ensures Safety & Reliability
The high quality sensor design, the MEMS Accelerometer products support test engineers around the world quickly and flexibly, to ensure safety and reliability of vehicles, equipment and buildings.
UAV & ROV Autopilot
Any sensor fixed to either UAV or ROV systems must be light and small and must have a low power consumption. In addition, high shocks resistance is a key element to keep the integrity of the IMU in case of crash. In terms of accuracy, the IMUs integrated on professional drones, should deliver accuracies corresponding to the Inertial Tactical Grade. Accelerometers of the Inertial Tactical Grade will have bias repeatability performances of around 1 mg.
North finding is critical for tactical navigation and target orientation localization. It is used either in fixed static observation systems or in hand-held portable devices. MS1000 implements an innovative microelectromechanical design and electronics which unleash unbeatable performances with regard to the long term bias and scale factor repeatability, in-run bias and vibration rectification error (VRE).
Inertial Navigation System Accelerometer
A key challenge for navigation systems is making them smaller, less expensive and more robust while preserving high-end performances grade. The innovative MS1000 accelerometer responds to tactical grade performance requirements due to the excellent bias and scale factor performances.
