Compact high-bandwidth design supports up to +/-40g, ideal for vibration sensing and shock detection in industrial and commercial applications
Kyoto, Japan and Ithaca, NY – September 21, 2017 – Kionix is pleased to announce the release of the KX220 sensor series, a new family of medium-g, tri-axis Analog Accelerometers. Initially two versions are available: the KX220-1071 and the KX220-1072, providing +/-20g and +/-40g ranges respectively. Maximum supported bandwidths range from 4.5kHz to 8kHz. Both sensors have built-in self-test functions, consume only 0.25mA at 3.3V and are delivered in 10-pin 3mm x 3mm LGA packages.
Since the typical application of industrial sensors are monitoring machines and physical processes, the g-range and bandwidth requirements are typically higher than those in hand held consumer devices. These sensors are targeted to assist in applications ranging from vibration monitoring to shock and impact detection and measurement. Markets served are Machine Health and Diagnostic Monitoring, Robotics and Automation, and Manufacturing Process Control.
