An accelerometer is a device that will measure acceleration forces. These forces may be static, like the constant force of gravity, or they could be dynamic – caused by moving or vibration.
By measuring the amount of static acceleration due to gravity, you can find out the angle the device is tilted at with respect to the earth. By sensing the amount of dynamic acceleration, you can analyse the way the device is moving.
If you are shipping fragile, sensitive, perishable, or calibrated goods, you can monitor whether they have been mishandled using our HOBO Pendant G Loggers.
Placed with your goods, these sensors detect and record impact and mishandling of fragile, sensitive, or calibrated products during transportation.
