5.1 INTRODUCTION

Accelerometers are devices used to measure acceleration, and can be divided into two groups according to their ability to measure constant acceleration: The first group consists of devices measuring vibration acceleration within the frequency band from a fraction of a hertz up to kHz. These accelerometers are unable to measure constant accelerations and, depending on the design and application, have some special names: vibrosensors, piezoaccelerometers, geophonic sensors, and so forth. Accelerometers in the second group are devices capable of measuring both constant and variable accelerations. ...
