Honeywell announces new accelerometer designed for aerospace and defense
PHOENIX – Honeywell has announced a new accelerometer – its MV60 Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) – which is designed for aerospace and defense, but also has potential uses for industrial and marine applications that require high-precision, navigation-grade accelerometers. which are small, light and require little power to operate.
The MV60 measures the acceleration undergone by an object during a movement. These types of high precision sensors are mainly used in inertial measurement units and navigation systems deployed on land, air and sea vehicles to measure speed. Additionally, inertial systems provide key orientation information for drilling operations; precision pointing and altitude determination for vehicles; platform stabilization; and target location and surveying.
The Honeywell MV60 Accelerometer features a compact footprint of just 1.2 square inches and shock resistance up to 5000g (g-force). It also offers a bandwidth greater than 300 Hz.
Accelerometers are essential parts of navigation systems, and Honeywell offers a range of precision accelerometers that deliver reliable performance at affordable prices to meet customer needs. For more information, please visit https://www.honeywell.com/us/en.
