Inertia Sensors

Inertia Sensors

Inertia Sensors are mounted on barriers and are used primarily to detect an attack on the structure itself. The technology relies on an unstable mechanical configuration that forms part of the electrical circuit. When movement or vibration occurs, the unstable portion of the circuit moves and breaks the current flow, which produces an alarm. The technology of the devices varies and can be sensitive to different levels of vibration. The medium transmitting the vibration must be correctly selected for the specific sensor as they are best suited to different types of structures and configurations.

Newer types of Inertia Sensors use piezo-electric components rather than mechanical circuits, which can be tuned to be extremely sensitive to vibration.
