Vibration / Shock Sensor 801S Module for Arduino

Vibration / Shock Sensor 801S Module for Arduino - This module changes its resistance level once vibration is detected. It can turn into a switch if the vibration is high. According from the datasheet, it is gold-plated and can withstand 60 million shocks. This module is connected in a voltage divider which can be measured thru its analog pin out.

People Also Ask:

Ques 1) What serves as a shock sensor on an Arduino?

Ans 1) An SW-18015P switch is used by this shock sensor, which is Arduino compatible, to identify impacts, vibrations, and shocks. It can be utilized to create a straightforward LED circuit that activates in the event of an impact. The main components of the switch are a terminal that creates the center column and a second terminal that surrounds the center post with a spring. The terminal made of the spring moves and momentarily shorts both terminals together when enough force is applied to the switch.

In general, it's best to place the switch as near as possible to the area being watched. Otherwise, other structural elements in your project could be able to reduce the vibration. On the other hand, if the switch proves to be too responsive for your application, try putting it further away to reduce sensitivity.

Ques 2) What are the types of Vibration sensors?

Ans 2) 1. Eddy Current

A non-contact vibration sensor known as an eddy current or capacitive displacement sensor creates magnetic fields to track changes in conductive component position. For universal sensing to function with such a vibration sensor, the detecting object must be larger than the sensor diameter.

2. Velocity Sensor

The velocity sensor is a vibration sensor type designed for measurements at high temperatures using a current produced by a magnet moving inside a coil. The reason velocity sensors are so common is that they are less vulnerable to amplifier overloads than accelerometer and gyroscope sensors.

3. Strain Guage Sensor

The strain on machinery is measured using a strain gauge sensor, a form of vibration sensor, by converting force, pressure, tension, or weight into a change in electrical resistance. It is mostly utilized for curved-surfaced products and mechanical applications.

4. Piezoelectric Accelerometer Sensor

Piezoelectric accelerometer sensors may be the most popular sort of vibration sensor. It may support a wide range of applications, including industrial uses, security systems, and vibration sensor alarms, among others.

Ques3: Why do we utilize vibration sensors?

Ans 3) You might be curious as to why vibration sensors are employed. Well, that partially addresses your issue if you consider the potential consequences of even a slight vibratory shift.

1. Vibration sensors aid in the early detection of these vibrating movements that could result in earthquakes or, more frequently, mechanical failures in machinery.

2. Its capacity for measurement, monitoring, and analysis enables the early identification of possible problems and the implementation of preventative measures
