New high-temperature MEMS inclinometer by Colibrys
The TS1000T by Colibrys is a new state-of-the-art MEMS inclinometer. Designed for high-temperature, this sensor will be perfect for harsh environment tilt sensing such as drilling applications.
This new inclinometer offers the highest performance stability with shock resistance, as well as the lowest non-linearity and noise in the marketplace for MEMS. A performance breakthrough allowing MEMS to address new market, such as Oil and Gaz, especially Measurement while Drilling – MWD application, also known as directional drilling.
Colibrys has more than 30 years of experience in MEMS technology. The company is specialized in high-performance sensors, being a key supplier for aerospace and defense markets. The company is also addressing niche applications for high-end mems accelerometers such as seismic or vibration measurement for monitoring.
By releasing the TS1000T, Colibrys is able to address MWD requirements, an application where MEMS were traditionally dismissed due to the lower performances in high-temperature. With a reliability over repetitive-shocks at more than 1500g and temperature up-to 175°C (347°F), MEMS are now competing with legacy technologies, offering a cost effective alternative.
The sensor is available in different g-acceleration ranges: ± 2, 5 and 10 g. It has an excellent repeatability with a residual modelling error less than ± 0.6 mg for a ±2 g version and features an excellent long-term bias stability, better than 1000ppmFS after extreme qualification plan.
