How to Choose the Best MEMS Sensor for a Wireless Condition-Based Monitoring System

Design considerations, the cutting edge of today's technology and an in-depth introduction to the Voyager platform and its capabilities: This article provides an extensive consideration in-depth consideration of all factors going into the right MEMS choice such as noise, bandwidth, and g range and also lesser referenced data sheet specifications.

MEMS accelerometer performance has recently advanced to the point where it can even compete with the piezo vibration sensor, offering key advantages such as lower power consumption, smaller size, higher levels of integration coupled with wide bandwidths, and extremely low noise levels. This development opens up completely new market potentials - and the question of the optimal MEMS component is more urgent than ever before, especially when it comes to applications in harsh environments.

With the new Voyager platform, designers can now benefit from a robust, low power, wireless mesh, vibration monitoring platform to rapidly deploy a wireless solution to a machine or test setup. It is able to detect various machine faults such as imbalance, misalignment, and bearing defects at an early state, making it a highly suitable solution for synchronized monitoring and controlling.
