Accelerometer Type Range Sampling Rate Bandwidth Noise Resolution
Piezoelectric ± 2,000g 20,000 Hz 5 to 2,000 Hz < 1.0 gRMS 0.06 g
Digital Capacitive ± 40g 4,000 Hz 0 to 300 Hz < 0.01 gRMS 0.00008 g

Please note: Piezoelectric accelerometers are susceptible to saturation due to exposure to high frequency events because they are AC coupled. If your application will have high frequency events (events with pulse widths less than 1 ms) we recommend checking out our S-R series products.

Battery performance is heavily dependent upon the device configuration (sensor sample rates and triggers), battery age (including charging cycles), temperature, and WiFi interference/strength. The following table provides the battery life and storage capacity of this device assuming it has a relatively new battery and it is at room temperature. When showing performance it assumes all sensors are on at the default sample rate with the main accelerometer sample rate driving performance. It also assumes wireless upload is turned OFF. If the device is uploading to the cloud after every recording, assume a battery life of 50% that listed below. With triggers, it assumes the device is in trigger mode 99% of the time. Here are some additional resources: Measurement Settings, Battery Specifications, Battery Life Estimator Tool.
