Maximise predictive maintenance with MEMS accelerometers

04 October 2023

When selecting MEMS accelerometers for condition-based monitoring, what are some critical, yet commonly overlooked parameters?

Critical parameters that are frequently underestimated in the selection process for a MEMS accelerometer are the g-range, the bandwidth, and the resonant frequency of the sensor. If these parameters are too low or barely sufficient, undesired measurement effects can occur.

MEMS accelerometers are essential for detecting fault conditions and helping to prevent unexpected outages or other costly events. As an engineer who is tasked with selecting and installing the right sensors for condition-based monitoring (CbM) applications, there are numerous critical parameters that require careful consideration before making your selection.

However, these factors can be easily overlooked. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the most important criteria you should bear in mind when making your choices.
