Supporting SCPI-like commands, the XL403D Advanced Digital Accelerometer returns data in engineering units, and works with any standard terminal emulator. It performs functions such as evaluating minimum/maximum, magnitude, peak-to-peak, and tilt – right in the accelerometer itself. Since the sensor conducts internal processing itself, it can eliminate additional hardware which saves time and money. 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. The sensor contains a temperature sensor, microcontroller, and analog outputs in a small, easy-to-install package. The microcontroller takes 10-bit 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 to 800 Hz.
