7576A: Robust Analog 6DOF Vibration Accelerometer




Dytran Instruments, Inc. (www.dytran.com) a leading manufacturer of piezoelectric and DC MEMS accelerometers, force and pressure transducers and associated electronics, is pleased to announce the release of the 7576A series, our new high-performance analog 6DOF motion sensor.

Series 7576A is a family of analog six degrees of freedom (6DOF) motion sensors containing three MEMS-based single axis accelerometers and three MEMS-based gyros to monitor the translational and rotational components of motion at the same physical point. This is used to determine the location of the center of rotation of a rigid body inside space. This compact, cost-effective, robust, titanium sealed sensor fits your most challenging real-world 6DOF application needs, including laboratory weather-exposed test track and laboratory environmental simulation condition.  

The 7576A family utilizes a separate MEMS chip for each acceleration and angular rate channel with high drive, low-impedance buffering for measuring acceleration and angular velocity in commercial and industrial environments. Series 7576A is offered in a variety of ranges to accommodate a myriad of motion applications. Sensors can be powered with any power supply that is capable of producing voltages from 5 to 30 VDC with at least 12 mA of current. The voltage output from the sensor, depending on the measurement, can swing around 2.5 Volts, as low as 0 volts and as high as 5 Volts.

Typical uses for the 7576A series include but are not limited to the following test applications: vehicle dynamics, ride and handling, rollover, automotive safety, aerospace testing, large machinery including industrial off-road, aircraft flight dynamics, aircraft ground test, helicopter evaluation, amusement ride, and playground surface investigation.
