MANSFIELD, Texas — Mouser Electronics, Inc. is stocking the PKGS Series Vibration Sensors from Murata. Engineered with a small footprint and low profile, these highly sensitive and extremely durable sensors offer excellent linearity in detecting shocks up to 3000Gs. The PKGS Series Vibration Sensors provide a high resonant frequency and wide available bandwidth. These sensors are constructed with an inclined primary axis so they can be easily fitted into a variety of ultra-sensitive devices such as hard disk drives (HDDs), optical drives, and optical-magnetic drives.
The Murata PKGS Series Vibration Sensors, available from Mouser Electronics, are designed as acceleration sensors with two terminals that can detect acceleration and shock from an electrical signal that is applied from outside the sensor enclosure. Using original polarization technology, the shock sensor is clamped at the two-end using bimorph piezo elements, giving the sensor even higher sensitivity and exceptional durability.
