Montreal, Canada – November 30, 2012 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has added another how-to video to its series about selecting the best electronic components for various applications. “How to Select the Right Accelerometer for Your Application” is now available along with many other helpful tutorials on the company’s YouTube channel.
An accelerometer measures proper acceleration, associated with the weight of a test mass. In semiconductor devices, piezoresistive, piezoelectric and capacitive components are commonly used in order to convert mechanical motion into an electrical signal. Accelerometers are unmatched in terms of their low packaged weight, high temperature range and upper frequency range. Modern accelerometers are the simplest type of micro electro-mechanical systems, or MEMS.
Accelerometers are able to work in high shock applications and can measure accelerations down to zero Hertz. They can also be used in any orientation and have no moving parts. Other advantages are that they are compact, have a large dynamic range, are cheap and easy to use and offer long term stability.
Accelerometers have a wide range of applications. They can be used in order to measure vehicle acceleration. They can also measure seismic activity, inclination, dynamic distance, speed and machine vibration. Accelerometers are also increasingly found in biological sciences and allow the discrimination of behavioral patterns when animals are out of sight.
“How to Select the Right Accelerometer for Your Application” includes step-by-step visuals and narration to assist the viewer in understanding the basics of accelerometers, and then guide them through the process of finding the right products on the company’s website in real time, showing how quick and easy it is to navigate the site, filtering by application, packaging, manufacturer and more to find the best parts for any application.
Many helpful videos have been recently introduced to Future Electronics YouTube channel and more will be launched in coming weeks. For more information about accelerometers, usb accelerometers, Bluetooth accelerometers, smartphone accelerometers, vibration accelerometers, analog accelerometers, digital accelerometers, various accelerometer manufacturers, the how-to video series, as well as access to the world’s largest available-to-sell inventory, visit Future Electronics YouTube channel.
