The MM5.10-R was designed to measure the physical effects of rotational and linear acceleration. In order to achieve this, the sensor includes MEMS measuring elements connected to an appropriate integrated circuit. A rotational acceleration around the integrated sensing elements generates a Coriolis force which changes the internal capacity of the micromachined sensing parts. Furthermore, a pure surface micromachined element is used to measure the vehicle lineal acceleration in all 3 axes. This combination of rotational and linear acceleration sensors enables a precise measurement of the vehicle dynamics.
The main features and benefits of this sensor are the aluminum compact housing, the combination of 3 linear and 2 rotational accelerometers and its high speed 1 Mbaud/s CAN-signal output.
