VS1000 Vibration Sensor

VS1000 is a high end capacitive MEMS accelerometer, specially designed for vibration measurements from DC to medium frequencies. Thanks to low noise, resistance to repetitive high shocks and insensitivity to temperature environments VS1000 guarantees confident and accurate vibration measurements in rugged environments.

The new Colibrys VS1000 embeds an optimized MEMS sensor, an improved die attach, a new ASIC with a powerful 200’000 Hz internal clock and a temperature sensor, the combination of which offers an outstanding large and flat frequency response from DC 0 Hz to 2500 Hz ±5% (typ), 7’000 Hz ± 3dB (typ). The new ASIC-optimized architecture offers exceptional bias and scale factor temperature sensitivity of ± 0.2 mg/°C (min/max) and 120 ppm/°C (typ). It also features overload and aftershock recovery detection. The non-linearity becomes almost nonexistent with 0.1% of the full scale output (typ), under vibrations.

The vibration sensor is available with a wide range of dynamics from ±2 to ±200g, which will allow it to address various applications with a single electronic interface and package.

All Colibrys MEMS are designed and manufactured in Switzerland following state-of-the-art proprietary industrial processes improved over 25 years. Each sensor is fully tested and qualified to Colibrys standards.

VS1000 Evaluation board


EVBA_2.0 – is a “plug and play” Evaluation Kit for Colibrys VS1000 accelerometers line.

To facilitate the integration in user environment and easily verify the excellent performances of VS1000 sensors, EVBA_2.0 integrates a VS1000 sensor with the user specified range, an ultra-low-noise, high-accuracy 3.3V voltage reference, the decoupling capacitors and output buffers.


EVBA_2.0. Kit composition:

• 1 analog evaluation board with soldered VS1000 of corresponding G range (evaluation board contains electronic circuits to achieve a preliminary signal conditioning)

• 2 connectors

   – 1 header connector (14 pins)

   – 1 mating connector (14 pins) with ~13 cm length signal cable ribbon

Key features:

  • Low noise power supply management, converting +5V to 3.3V
  • Output signal conditioning
    • buffers to enable the use of long lines between the sensor and the user electronic
    • low-pass filters with cutting frequency
  • Easy system integration – 4 fixing holes for mechanical fixture
  • Industrial interface (14 pins)
