Issaquah, WA (PressExposure) June 01, 2009 -- Silicon Designs, Inc. has begun production of its new model 2470 triaxial accelerometer module. The 2470 combines the universal flexibility of the widely popular 2460 and the higher performance abilities of the 2440 into one low cost module. This makes the 2470 user friendly and suitable for a diverse range of applications, but also ideal for projects that demand precision over a large spectrum of conditions.
The 2470 module is tailored for zero to medium frequency instrumentation applications with a rugged anodized aluminum case and three orthogonally mounted model 1221L accelerometers. The 2470 responds to DC and AC acceleration, operates from -55 to +110Â°C, with ranges available from Â± 2 to Â± 200 g full scale acceleration. It supports +8 to +32V DC power, yet maintains low power consumption. Low impedance outputs (Â±4V Differential or 0.5V to 4.5V Single Ended) will drive up to 15 meters of cable. On-board voltage regulation and an internal voltage reference eliminate the need for precision power supplies.
Orders for the 2470 are being accepted and it is currently in production. Custom specifications and quantity discounts are available. All of SDIâs products are made in the USA. For a data sheet on the 2470 and to see SDIâs complete product catalog, visit http://www.silicondesigns.com.
About Silicon Designs, Inc.: Since its inception in 1983, SDIâs core competency has always been accelerometers, and the philosophy of "Make it better, stronger, smaller, and less expensive" is maintained to this day. SDI received the prestigious Tibbetts Award in 1997 from the Small Business Administration and was inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame in 1999. SDI specializes in commercial-grade accelerometers such as those used in automobile crash detection and stability testing, identifying unusual vibrations in race cars and airplane engines, and monitoring structural integrity in bridges, hydroelectric power generators, and wind farm turbines. SDI's miniature accelerometer technology is currently used by the US Military, NASA, and in the automotive, transportation, and agricultural industries.
