Monnit wireless accelerometers can be used in a host of applications where knowing impact, vibration, inclination, etc. is required.
The wireless accelerometer - tilt sensor activates at a set time interval (defined by user) and converts accelerometer measurements to pitch and roll (0 to 180° -> -180° to 0°). The data is displayed in degrees with 0.1° of resolution.
The wireless accelerometer - Impact Detection sensor activates when g-forces are exceeded by a user defined threshold – up to 8 g-force. The user can key in the desired threshold for the g-force trigger. This sensor has two operation modes that can be also selected by the user: High Performance and Low Power. High Performance has an output data rate of 800 Hz with the High Pass Filter cutoff at 16 Hz while the Low Power has an output data rate of 12.5 Hz with the High Pass Filter cutoff at 0.25 Hz.
The wireless accelerometer - G-Force snapshot sensor activates at a set time interval (defined by user) and measures g-force along X, Y and Z axes. Primary use is as an inclinometer or tilt sensor. There are three operating modes, ±2 G, ±4 G, or ±8G. The data displayed is the g-force on each axis, e.g. –> X: 0.001 Y: 0.031 Z: 1.01.
The wireless accelerometer - G-Force max & avg sensor samples at 800 Hz over a 10 second period, and reports the measured MAXIMUM value for each axis in g-force and the AVERAGE measured g-force on each axis over the same period, for all three axes. This sensor reports in every 10 seconds with this data. Other sampling periods can be configured , down to one second and up to 10 minutes*. The data reported is useful for tracking periodic motion. Sensor data is displayed as Max X: 0.125 Max Y: 1.012 Max Z: 0.015 Avg X: 0.119 Avg Y: 1.005 Avg Z: 0.007.
Monnit Vibration Meters use an accelerometer to measure g-force on 3 axis and then determine speed and frequency. They can be set to only capture when a vibration occurs and sleep when no vibrations are present, or they can be set to measure at a given assessment interval regardless of whether a vibration has occurred. If set to always measure, the sensitivity can be further adjusted to filter out noise. The Vibration Meter will also report the duty cycle, or how long the sensor was measuring vibrations throughout the heartbeat.
Notes: These accelerometers do not "stream" continuous data. Please reference the data sheet for further information.
* Actual range may vary depending on environment.
** Battery life is affected by reporting frequency (heartbeat), sensor type, Wi-Fi security type, distance from Wi-Fi router and other variables.
