This specification defines the requirements for a linear, single-axis, nongyroscopic accelerometer. The accelerometer is used as a sensing element to provide an electrical signal proportional to acceleration or velocity change with a transfer function that is nominally low-pass (rather that bandpass). The output is [an analog voltage current, a binary pulse train, a ternary pulse train, pulse width modulated, a frequency output,...] representing [acceleration, velocity change].
This specification describes the design and performance requirements for____________[model number, part number, change letter (if any), other identification], manufactured by__________[name, address].
Revision Standard - Active.
The specification and test requirements for a linear, single-axis, nongyroscopic accelerometer for use in internal navigation, guidance, and leveling systems are defined. A standard specification guide and a compilation of recommended test procedures for such accelerometers are provide. Informative annexes are given on the various types of such accelerometers (force or pendulous torque rebalance with analog or digital output, vibrating beam, and micromechanical) and error effects, on filtering, noise, and transient anaysis techniques, and on calibration and modeling techniques (multipoint tumble analysis, vibration and shock test analyses, and geophysical effects in inertial instrument testing). IEEE 1293 is revision combining IEEE Stds 337 and 530.
