Accelerometers Silicon Designs has released the SDl model 1510 series of analog surface-mount accelerometers. The series offers general purpose vibration measurements at original equipment manufacturer volumes for aerospace, automotive, energy, industrial, oil and gas, and test and measurement applications. The SDl model 1510 series incorporates a micromachined variable capacitive sensing element and custom integrated circuit. The accelerometer produces two analog voltages that vary proportionately according to measured acceleration levels. Series units respond to either alternating-current or direct-current acceleration.
