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.

Modern MEMS sensors evaluate the acceleration in all 3 axes.
In the graphic, the accelerations are shown in all 3 axes. Alarm thresholds can be defined.
