Mouser stocking vibration sensor from Analog Devices

Mouser Electronics has added a new product from Analog Devices to its portfolio, the ADcmXL 1021-1 Vibration Sensor Module.

Based on Analog Devices’ microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensor technology, the ADcmXL1021-1 module is a complete sensing system that monitors for early indications of possible machine fatigue and failure specifically in industrial and transportation equipment to help reduce repair costs and maintain a high level of productivity.

The ADcmXL1021-1, is a single z-axis vibration monitoring subsystem designed to simplify the development of smart sensor nodes in condition-based monitoring (CBM) systems. The device incorporates a wide-bandwidth, low-noise MEMS accelerometer plus an analogue-to-digital converter (ADC), high-performance signal processing, data buffers, record storage, and a user interface that easily works with most embedded processors.

The device’s signal processing includes high-speed data sampling (220 kSPS), 4096 time sample record lengths, filtering, windowing, fast Fourier transform (FFT), user-configurable spectral or time statistic alarms, and error flags.

It uses an ADXL1002 MEMS accelerometer with ultra-low noise density (26 µg/√Hz) to support excellent resolution. With a wide bandwidth of DC to 10 kHz, the device enables tracking of key vibration signatures on many machine-based platforms. The ADcmXL1021-1 offers a high operating input range of ±50 g, making it suitable for vibration measurements in high-bandwidth Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 applications such as vibration analysis systems that monitor and diagnose machine or system health, as well as safety shutoff sensing.

Mouser also stocks the EVAL-ADCM-1 evaluation kit, which includes the ADcmXL1021-1 module, a breakout board, an ADcmXL interface board, a Cypress Semiconductor EZ-USB® FX3 board, and necessary cables. Engineers can connect the kit to a PC to access evaluation software for effortless configuration of the module, register setup, data display, and data logging.
