The force balance sensor is intended for DC and low frequency acceleration measurements, such as those encountered in the motion of vehicles, aircraft and ships. These sensors are capable of measuring levels from as low as 0.0001g up to 200g’s over a frequency range from DC to 1000Hz. In addition, due to their inherent sensitivity to gravity, the force balance accelerometers with certain modifications or special features become excellent instruments for measuring angles of inclination. This type of sensor, often referred to as an inclinometer is useful in applications such as platform leveling, pipeline leveling, gun sight control, borehole mapping and other low level seismic measurement applications.


CRL offers a wide selection of Force Balance Servo Accelerometers and Inclinometers, specifically designed to give the user a diversified choice of sizes, configurations and performance levels for industrial, O.E.M. and military requirements. Many of these sensors have been in-flight missile qualified in accordance with all applicable MIL-Standards/Commercial standards and are currently being used on a variety of our government’s most technically demanding military in-flight weapons systems.

CRL also offers servo accelerometers that have been TSO-Approved by the FAA for flight avionics, commercial and general aircraft flight control systems. For over forty five years, high reliability product performance for such critical applications have been a significant feature of CRL Force Balance Servo Accelerometers and Inclinometers.
