About MEMS

Advantages of MEMS devices

  • MEMS technology extends the advantages of size reduction beyond the electrical domain to the mechanical with faster processing speed, lower power consumption, greater complexity/functionality, and lower costs.
  • Syscor's MEMS device components are sealed, durable, reliable, and self-calibrate with gravity.
  • Syscor’s inclinometer and accelerometer sensors use MEMS technology and provide highly sensitive detection of inclination and movement. This is particularly useful for floating roof monitoring on aboveground storage tanks but can also be used for any application where inclination detection is required.

Where Syscor uses MEMS

Syscor's Field Transmitter and Inclinometer utilize MEMS-based inclinometer and accelerometer sensors. Syscor’s sensor transducers can also be configured with accelerometer sensors.
