ADI's New Micropower Accelerometer Enables Remote #IoT Edge Nodes to Monitor Asset Health

Norwood, MA (BUSINESS WIRE). Analog Devices has announced a next-generation accelerometer designed for long-period monitoring of the physical condition of high-value assets. With its low-power capabilities, the ADXL372 micropower high-g MEMS accelerometer targets IoT solutions where shock and impact on a unit during storage, transit, or use would adversely affect its function, safety, or reliability. Representative assets include materials inside shipping and storage containers, factory machinery, and battery-powered products where there may be lengthy quiet periods punctuated by spontaneous, severe impacts. Unlike comparable sensors, this ultralow power MEMS sensor has an “instant on” feature and can wake up immediately to acquire the entire waveform, which significantly reduces standby power drain. The resulting low-current requirement of less than two microamps while wa...
