Q-Flex Accelerometer QA3000

For the month of February we are highlighting the Honeywell Q-Flex Accelerometer QA3000 and assisted product line.

Honeywell Inertial & Sensor Systems produces the Q-Flex® Quartz Accelerometer 3000 (QA3000). Built on the same production line as the industry-standard QA2000 Accelerometer, the QA3000 Accelerometer has the same inherent quality, reliability, and long-term performance characteristics of the QA2000 Accelerometer. Primary applications include spacecraft navigation and control systems.

As with the entire Q-Flex family of accelerometers, the QA3000 features a patented Q-Flex etched-quartz-flexure seismic system. An amorphous quartz proofmass structure provides excellent bias, scale factor, and axis alignment stability.

The integral electronics develops an acceleration-proportional output current providing both static and dynamic acceleration measurement. By use of a customer supplied output load resistor, appropriately scaled for the acceleration range of the application, the output current can be converted into a voltage.

The QA3000 also includes a current-output, internal temperature sensor. By applying temperature-compensating algorithms, bias, scale factor, and axis misalignment performance are dramatically improved.
