I have recently completed my final year project which was to create a condition monitoring module. It basically calculated a Shock Response Spectrum from a short acceleration time series after a threshold acceleration was detected.
Anyway upon testing I noted that the accel I was using didn't show any frequencies above 1000Hz and surprise surprise when i dug into the actual IC datasheet I found that it's maximum bandwidth was 1000Hz. I had initially interpreted the fact that it was an analogue output to mean the bandwidth was whatever I could sample it at! (rookie error I know)
The project is over now but it got me thinking. With a Teensy 3.1 I can easy sample at upwards of 40kHz so would I be able to interface it or any other arduino with the type of accel used on most lab tests.
here is the accel (https://www.pcb.com/products.aspx?m=352C04)
It appears to have a coaxial connection but I can't quite work out how on earth I would go about getting a reading from it. I use a National instruments DAQ in the lab where all i had to do was connect the cable.
