What is the difference between an accelerometer and an inclinometer?
Murata Electronics Oy's inclinometers and accelerometers are all based on the same MEMS capacitive measuring technology. Different product versions are optimized for different purposes, determined by the g-range in which they are going to be used. The maximum g-range of the inclinometers is earth's gravitation (approximately 1g) . Murata Electronics Oy's accelerometers measure low-g ranges of ±0.26g up to ±12 g.
