Series 3741 MEMS high-sensitivity dcresponse accelerometers can handle various crash-sled acceleration profiles with full-scale ranges from 2 to 20 g, up to 2-kHz measurement capability, and sensitivities up to 1 V/g. The dc response allows measurements in both static and dynamic environments. Units include mechanical overrange stops to prevent damage from rough handling and transient shock. Internal amplification provides high-level signals (±2-V FSO) at low acceleration levels, for low-amplitude motion measurements. Sensors are gas damped and temperature compensated. The Series is designed in response to automotive-safetytesting standards and occupantsafety-system requirements including sideimpact protection, child restraints/seat testing, pedestrian protection, wheelchair integral restraint systems (WIRS), SAE J2249, and rear impact/whiplash.
