Compact motion offers application specific settings
Measuring only 2.0×2.0×0.7mm, the WSEN-ITDS sensor, is offered in an LGA package and uses a MEMS-based capacitive measuring principle. Thanks to an integrated temperature sensor, the sensor outputs calibrate data directly. Four measuring ranges are available for selection: ±2, ±4, ±8 or ±16 g. Register settings can be used to select the application-specific functionalities for free fall, wake-up, tap, activity, motion and orientation detection. The acceleration sensor can be used in a variety of ways: for example, high-resolution with up to 1,600 Hz output data rate for vibration monitoring, such as in the predictive maintenance of machines, or in low-power mode for recording a single pulse when a switch is touched, for instance. In this case, the energy-saving sensor can even be operated with energy harvesting. The ability to use integrated algorithms to prepare the measured data for application cases makes application development far easier. The WSEN-ITDS is specified for a temperature range from -40 to +85°C.
