Winner - Passive Components and Sensors: ADXL001 Industrial Vibration Sensor
The ADXL001 is a high-bandwidth iMEMS® vibration sensor that enables better monitoring of equipment performance and reduced downtime due to unforeseen system failures on the factory floor. Based on Analog Devices’ iMEMS Motion Signal ProcessingTM technology, the industrial vibration and shock sensor allows designers of industrial process control instruments to cost-effectively incorporate high-performance, dependable high-bandwidth vibration monitoring into their applications via an easy-to-use sensor solution.
Many vibration sensors operate below 5 kHz of bandwidth, a frequency range that would be emitted only after extensive equipment failure. The ADXL001, however, is capable of very early detection of motor-bearing vibration and irregularities up to 22 kHz, allowing system operators to identify failing equipment long before costly damage is sustained. The new iMEMS vibration sensor is available in a 5-mm × 5-mm ceramic package that is small enough to be easily designed into the motor control circuitry or mounted on existing factory equipment at the point-of- measurement interest.
