SDI 1522 SURFACE MOUNT ACCELEROMETERS

SDI Model 1522L accelerometers
little-datasheet.jpg

The Model 1522 is a low-cost, industrial-grade surface mount MEMS DC accelerometer with enhanced temperature performance.  Like the SDI Model 1521, it is designed for use between -55°C and +125°C, however the Model 1522 has only half the bias and scale-factor temperature coefficients than that of the Model 1521. Each nitrogen damped, hermetically sealed Model 1522 accelerometer is individually temperature tested, programmed, calibrated and verified within a climate chamber environment to ensure its improved performance in more temperature-intensive applications.  These combined features make the SDI Model 1522 ideal for applications characterized by large or rapid temperature fluctuations, or where particularly hot or cold operating temperatures persist over an extended timeframe.

Quick Links

Each miniature, hermetically sealed package combines a MEMS capacitive sense element for DC measurement and a custom integrated circuit that includes a sense amplifier and differential output stage.  It is relatively insensitive to temperature changes and gradients.  Each device is individually tested, programmed, calibrated by SDI, as well as marked with a serial number on its top and bottom surfaces for traceability.  An calibration test report (1522-TST) is supplied with every unit showing the measured bias, scale factor, linearity, operating current, & frequency response.

OPERATION

The model 1522 sensitive axis is perpendicular to the bottom of the package, with positive acceleration resulting from a positive force pushing on the bottom of the package. The seismic center is located on a centerline through the dual sense elements and halfway between them. 

The Model 1522 produces a differential +/-4 volts output voltage, the value of which varies with acceleration as shown in the figure. The seismic center is located on a centerline through the dual sense elements halfway between them.  Any errors due to rotation about this point are effectively cancelled by the internal electronics.

Two reference voltages, +5.0 and +2.5 volts (nominal), are required; scale factor is ratiometric to the +5.0 volt reference voltage relative to GND, and both outputs at zero acceleration are nominally the same as the +2.5 volt input.

PERFORMANCE - ALL VERSIONS

All Models: Unless otherwise specified, Vs=+8 to +32 VDC, TC=25°C, Differential Mode.  Span = ±g range = 8000 mV.

Note (1): For 2g thru 50g only; 100g and greater versions are tested and specified from -65 to +65g.

NOTICE:  Stresses greater than those listed may cause permanent damage to the device.  These are maximum stress ratings only.  Functional operation of the device at or above these conditions is not implied.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORY

Model EB-L Analog Test Sets

​The Model EB-L Analog Test Set provides a convenient means of testing and evaluating SDI Model 1522 surface mount accelerometers. 

The zero-insertion-force socket is pre-fitted to the board, which includes set jumpers for advanced features of SDI accelerometers. A 10-pin connector and ribbon cable provide connections to the user's test equipment.

The EB-L Analog Test Set and SDI Surface Mount Accelerometers are each sold separately.
