The MXD6240, 41AU, MXC6244AU, and MXC6245XU family of acceleration and tip-over sensors provide tip-over and acceleration sensing in a wide range of applications. The devices employ proprietary thermal accelerometer technology that relies on heated gas molecules to sense acceleration instead of a mechanical beam structure. The transducer exhibits a natural low-pass frequency response with virtually no mechanical resonance and extremely high accuracy over a range of temperatures. This makes the devices suited to harsh and/or high vibration environments, where competing sensor solutions can exhibit false readings or other errors due to resonance. The MXD6240 and MXD6241AU are autonomous inclination sensors with eight pin-programmable tip-over angle thresholds from 40º to 70º making them viable for tip-over applications where no microcontroller is available. The MXC6244AU and MXC6245XU are two-axis I2C interface accelerometers each with 1 mg of resolution. The MXC6244AU is ±8g full scale range device. It includes the internal anti-vibration filter and the eight angle thresholds. More information is available at http://www.memsic.com/accelerometers

An accelerometer measures the rate of change of an object’s velocity to monitor its movement.

From cell phones to industrial manufacturing, knowing when an object (or a person!) is nearby is a basic sensing requirement.
