The company’s depth of engineering expertise and sound commercial judgement support the delivery of the most complex of projects backed by its unique on-line order tracking facility; delivery guarantee; comprehensive warranty and in-house laboratory for the meticulous calibration of sensors to traceable standards.

Sherborne Sensors, a world leading company in the design and manufacture of superior precision accelerometers, inclinometers and force transducers, today launched its A320 range of robust accelerometers for use in highly accurate measurement of low-g acceleration.

The fully self-contained linear acceleration sensors can measure from an ultra low, industry leading ±0.1g up to ±2g. The sensors simply connect to a DC power source and a readout or control device for a complete operating system.

Closed loop, servo balance technology confers these sensors with extremely high precision for measurements in low-g applications. Despite their low measuring range, the A320 series of accelerometers are very robust and can withstand shocks of 1500g and vibrations of 35g rms and operate in temperatures ranging from -18 °C to +70 °C.

The new sensors are ideally suited to geo-physical and civil engineering studies and the predicative monitoring of large structures, something that is becoming increasingly important in many parts of the world. They are also suitable for a range of other applications in sectors including transport, industrial, military and aerospace.

Mike Baker, Managing Director of Sherborne Sensors explained: “Our new A320 range has been designed for high precision low-g measurement in the harshest of environments. Recent seismic events and issues with aging structures where the smallest changes can prove crucial have highlighted the need for ever more predictive monitoring. The A300 accelerometers are designed to fulfil this task and can be embedded in structures to deliver decades of reliable operation.”
