Product Description

Monnit wireless accelerometers can be used in a host of applications where knowing impact, vibration, inclination, etc. is required.

The wireless accelerometer - Impact Detection sensor activates when g-forces are exceeded by a user defined threshold – up to 8 g-force. The user can key in the desired threshold for the g-force trigger. This sensor has two operation modes that can be also selected by the user: High Performance and Low Power. High Performance has an output data rate of 800 Hz with the High Pass Filter cutoff at 16 Hz while the Low Power has an output data rate of 12.5 Hz with the High Pass Filter cutoff at 0.25 Hz.



  These accelerometers do not "stream" continuous data. Please reference the data sheet for further information.

Product Features

  • Detects Impact (G-Force Threshold)

  * Actual range may vary depending on environment.
** Battery life is determined by sensor reporting frequency and other variables.
