Vibration Monitoring Essentials – An Overview of Acceleration Measurement Technologies
To select the appropriate accelerometer, a clear understanding of the application and its measurement tasks are essential.
This whitepaper explains the various types of absolute vibration transducers – accelerometers with pure acceleration outputs and their corresponding measurement chains.
Included is a detailed overview of the following sensor types, the advantages and disadvantages for each, their required signal conditioning, and best-fit data acquisition systems:
- PE – Piezoelectric
- IEPE Integrated Electronics Piezoelectric
- MEMS Micro Electromechanical System
