   GeoSIG AC-6x Force Balance Accelerometer
GeoSIG AC-6x Force Balance Accelerometer  

The AC-63 is a reliable Force Balance Accelerometer based on the latest MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems) technology.

The sensor package is designed for applications regarding earthquake and structural monitoring and measuring. All these applications require a high dynamic, rugged sensor with minimum maintenance.

The MEMS accelerometer has a variable capacitor design that is operated in a closed-loop configuration with a custom mixed-signal application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC).

The MEMS accelerometer is a wafer stack composed of four individual wafers bonded together. Within the inner two wafers of the stack, and suspended by silicon springs, is a moving structure called the proof-mass. This forms a differential variable capacitance between the surfaces of the moving proof-mass

and the fixed caps. As the accelerometer is subjected to vibration, the proof-mass moves between the fixed plates which, in turn, causes a change in the differential capacitance.

A Digital Sensor Control (DSC) is used to provide the AC-63 with exceptional user-friendly features. At turn on the DSC nulls all outputs including the vertical channel. This powerful feature allows the users to install the AC-63 and turn it on. Time consuming offset adjustment and instrument levelling are not necessary.

The DC response allows the sensor to be easily repaired, tilt tested or recalibrated in the field. With the help of the TEST LINE the AC-63 accelerometer can be completely tested assuring proper operation and accurate acceleration measurement.
