Monnit Launches New ALTA G-Force Max/Avg. Sensor with Real-Time Response

g-force averaging sensor

SALT LAKE CITYAugust 8, 2019 — Monnit Corporation ( launched today the ALTA® G-Force Max/Avg. Sensor. The unique wireless sensor features a groundbreaking ability to deliver real-time G-force alerts with details that aid analysis.

“Because of battery constraints, real-time response for G-force hasn’t been practical: Customers received a simple movement alert,” said Nick Mecham, Monnit VP of Business Development. “Monnit has developed a way to maintain outstanding battery life and deliver real-time response. Imagine getting more than an alert that a fence is moving. The new sensor provides enough data to determine whether it is swaying with the wind, vibrating as someone climbs it, or falling as something levels it.”

The ALTA G-Force Max/Avg. Sensor (ALTA GMA) is a turnkey solution that uses an accelerometer to determine which axis the force is on, as well as the maximum/average movement force.

Diverse Applications
The ALTA GMA provides detailed tracking for a wide range of industrial applications. Monitoring for unauthorized access, physical barrier integrity, unusual motor shake, wind turbine abnormalities and assembly line irregularities are just some of the application possibilities for this broad-spectrum vibration meter.

Advanced Features
  • Instant G-force detection alerts with details for quickly assessing a situation
  • Three resolution modes: 2G, 4G, 8G
  • Four data rates: 6Hz, 12Hz, 50Hz, 100Hz
  • A high pass filter is available in all resolution modes and data rates (to remove gravity)
  • Provides the following for 3 axes (X, Y and Z):
    • Raw, full-spectrum G-force maximum
    • Raw, full-spectrum G-force average
    • Magnitude maximum
    • Magnitude average
  • Sensor orientation status for excellent real-time awareness

The ALTA G-Force Max/Avg. Sensor is available in both AA and Industrial configurations. Discover more here.
