Kionix analogue accelerometers target industrial markets

Kionix , a ROHM company, has released a new family of medium-g, tri-axis analogue accelerometers.

Two versions are currently available: the KX220-1071 and the KX220-1072, providing +/-20g and +/-40g ranges respectively. Maximum supported bandwidths range from 4.5kHz to 8kHz. Both sensors have built-in self-test functions, consume only 0.25mA at 3.3V and are delivered in 10-pin 3mm x 3mm LGA packages.

Applications include industrial sensors for monitoring machines and physical processes, where the g-range and bandwidth requirements are typically higher than those in hand held consumer devices. These sensors are targeted to assist in applications ranging from vibration monitoring to shock and impact detection and measurement.
