API Technologies Corp. has released its XL403D advanced digital accelerometer. The company added that the patent pending XL403D is the first accelerometer of its kind that supports SCPI-like commands, returns data in engineering units and works with any standard terminal emulator.

In addition to internal processing functions, the output is user configurable allowing customers to choose the number of axes, units returned, bandwidth, sample rates and readout display results. It is an ideal solution for testing military and aerospace components, monitoring vibration of aircraft, measuring inclination of portable field masts, and adding threshold detection and warnings to military and aerospace systems, indicated the company.

The sensor contains a temperature sensor, microcontroller and analogue outputs in a small, easy-to-install package. The microcontroller takes 10bit samples and performs temperature compensation and additional functions as programmed for output via the RS-485 interface. It is available from 1 g to 15g and with low pass filter bandwidths from 1-800Hz.
