MEMS variable capacitive accelerometers with eight-pin connector

The 2466 series from Silicon Designs is a family of low-cost industrial grade triaxial universal MEMS capacitive accelerometer modules with eight-pin connector.


Designed to provide high-precision shock, vibration and acceleration measurements in three orthogonal directions, the units are available in eight unique ranges from ±2 to ±400g. The model 2466 series combines three orthogonally mounted single axis accelerometers within an epoxy sealed anodized aluminium case. The sensors are interchangeable between the Silicon Designs model 2476 and 2480, allowing the 2466 to be used within applications calling for the use of an 8-pin connector, with the ability to use the same cable.

The 2466 series may also be used as a drop-in replacement of other industry accelerometers of similar type and performance for up to 40% less cost, according to the manufacturer. Sensor replacements can be achieved in less than 30 seconds for customer cost savings and convenience with minimal to no downtime. Unlike many MEMS-based sensors which incorporate passive components, Silicon Designs sensors feature active, self-adjusting components. On-board voltage regulation and an internal voltage reference minimize temperature and voltage changes while eliminating the need for additional external power regulation.
