Wireless activity detection sensor

Coin cell | AA | Industrial

Spook wireless activity sensors come in a range of different types. Each are designed to alert on the change of a specific activity. They can detect sudden movement or whether machinery is in use or not.

Understanding the activity of equipment can be helpful in knowing if things are running in a normal state or whether they require attention. This, in turn, can assist in preventative maintenance programs and extending the life of monitored kit.

The activity sensor (or accelerometer) is a device used to measure different kinds of acceleration based on the rate of change of velocity. The first accelerometer, originally known as the "Atwood Machine", was invented by the English physicist George Atwood and measured linear acceleration such as a falling object. Atwood's activity sensor was initially designed to prove the principles of Sir Issac Newtons papers on universal gravity. There are many variations of accelerometers but all derive their ability to measure acceleration because of the "Atwood Machine".
