Accelerometers

Capture critical machinery data with Bently Nevada Acceleration Sensors

The evolution of our accelerometers began with velocity sensors that offered a self-generating moving-coil design used by geologists to measure movement in the earth’s crust. We still refer to “seismic” sensors in a nod to their origin.

These early sensors yielded to the introduction of rugged solid-state accelerometers, later ushering in today’s integrated Accelerometers that deploy signal processing circuitry for output signals using velocity rather than acceleration.

Our experience and expertise developed over decades offers a selection of first-rate casing-mounted accelerometers and velocity sensors with a variety of models for specific applications.
