Abstract: Traditional magneto-electric vibration sensors and servo accelerometers have severe shortcomings when used to measure vibration where low frequency components predominate. A low frequency characteristic extension for velocity vibration sensors is presented in this paper. The passive circuit technology, active compensation technology and the closed-cycle pole compensation technology are used to extend the measurable range and to improve low frequency characteristics of sensors. These three types of low frequency velocity vibration sensors have been developed and widely adopted in China.

Keywords: vibration sensor; low frequency characteristic extension; passive circuit technology; active compensation technology; closed-cycle pole compensation
