The FXLN83xxQ three-axis analog accelerometer detects ultra-high frequency motion and vibration in industrial motors and equipment. Designed to capture acceleration information often missed by less accurate sensors, the device enables intelligent algorithms to accurately perform fault prognostication for predictive maintenance and condition monitoring applications. Housed in a compact 3 x 3 mm package, the FXLN83xxQ features a bandwidth of 2.7 kHz and an operating temperature range of -40º to +105ºC. With an analog output, the device is universally compatible across a wide range of ADC-enabled MCUs. Other specs include operation over a 1.71V to 3.6V supply voltage, a selectable force range from ±2g to 16g, and a QFN package measuring 3 mm x 3 mm x 1.05 mm with a 0.65-mm pitch. An evaluation kit, the DEMOFXLN83xxQ is available for the device, as well as four breakout boards (BRKOUT-FXLN8361Q, BRKOUT-FXLN8362Q, BRKOUT-FXLN8371Q, BRKOUT-FXLN8372Q) for a quick retrofit of the device. Freescale also provides the Xtrinsic Intelligent Sensing Framework for software development. The FXLN83xxQ accelerometer is available now for a suggested resale price of $1.20 to $1.70 each/1,000.
