DIS - Acceleration sensors

dis-beschleunigungssensorDIS acceleration sensors have a higher bandwidth than inclination sensors so they can measure faster movements with very hig accuracy.


Functions accelerometers

Measurement of acceleration and vibration, active vibration damping, transport monitoring



Agricultural machinery, wind mills, containers


The acceleration sensor housing

Many of the DIS sensors in the QG range use a unique universal plastic housing concept, known as QUADRO®. The advantage is the very compact size, simple installation and the fact that the electronics are fully sealed which provides a high degree of ingress protection (IP67).


Types of acceleration sensors

DIS acceleration sensors are available with the following general specifications:

  • Measurement range: ±0.26 to ±18 g (1 g = 9.81 m/s²)
  • Frequency: 0 - 10/50/100/500/1,000/2,500 Hz
  • Energy supply: 5 V dc or 10-30 V dc
  • Analogue output: 0.5 - 4.5 V or 4 - 20 mA
  • Digital output: CANopen (Safety)
  • Level of protection: IP67, IP68 or IP69K
  • Precision: depending on model and range: as high as ±0.003 g
  • Zeroing possibility: depends on model
  • Functional safety: SIL2/PLd (optional)
  • Housing: (reinforced) plastic or stainless steel
