SDI model 1525 inertial accelerometers
little-datasheet.jpg

The Model 1525 MEMS DC surface mount inertial accelerometer incorporates Silicon Designs’ own high-performance sense element, along with a ±4.0V differential analog output stage, internal temperature sensor and integral sense amplifier, all within a miniature, nitrogen damped, hermetically sealed, surface mounted J-lead LCC-20 ceramic package. An average bias repeatability specification of 5 mg for the Model 1525 means that it was designed to provide the high level, long-term stability required for intensive inertial applications within -40 to +85°C environments, such as  backup systems for light-to-medium weight aircraft and helicopters. The Model 1525 also features low-power operation, excellent in-run bias stability, and zero cross-coupling, yet remains relatively insensitive to temperature changes and gradients.

Quick Links

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.  A calibration test report (1525-TST) is provided with every unit showing the measured bias, scale factor, linearity, operating current, & frequency response.

OPERATION

The model 1525 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 1525 produces a differential +/-4 volts output voltage, the value of which varies with acceleration as shown in figure 1. 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.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORY

Model EB-J Analog Test Set

​The Model EB-J Analog Test Set provides a convenient means of testing and evaluating SDI Model 1525 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-J Analog Test Set and SDI Surface Mount Accelerometers are each sold separately.
