Acceleration sensors

How do accelerometers work?

Accelerometers can be built in many different ways. We use the so-called MEMS sensors. These are intelligent sensors that combine an electrical-mechanical signal conversion with subsequent evaluation circuitry on a chip. The resulting electrical signals must then be evaluated by intelligent electronics and software. There are a large number of sensors with different sensitivity levels on the market. The triggering criteria determine the alarms, e.g. pre-alarms or silent alarms.
