The Advantages of MEMS-Based Sensors for Condition Monitoring

Learn more about what the advantages of MEMS-based sensors are why they remain in high demand.

Condition monitoring products that employ a MEMS (microelectromechanical system) accelerometer as the core sensor help to reduce overall cost of deployment and ownership. And although MEMS accelerometers don’t offer a noise performance low enough to work with diagnostic applications that require lower noise over higher frequency ranges and bandwidths beyond 10 kHz, MEMS still offer several compelling and valuable advantages to condition monitoring product designs. These advantages include reduced package sizes, less weight, flexibility in mounting and placement, and single voltage supply signal conditioning for analog or digital interfaces with very low power — similar to what is found in the ADXL355, a high resolution, high stability triaxial accelerometer from Analog Devices. In this article from Analog Devices, learn more about what the biggest advantages of MEMS-based sensors are, as well as why they remain in high demand.
