High-g accelerometers for passive safety applications SMA550, SMA560

The SMA550 and SMA560 are versatile accelerometers for automotive passive safety systems. They are typically used as central sensors in the airbag Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and measure the deceleration rate of a vehicle during a collision to activate restraint systems, such as front and side airbags or seatbelt tensioner. Other applications like shock monitoring are also possible.
