Movement sensors

We partner with some of the world’s leading manufacturers for high-end MEMS based accelerometers, Gyroscopes/angular rate, tilt and vibration sensors in terms of precision, bias stability, low noise, long term reliability, extended operating temperatures and exceptional performance with repetitive resistance to shock and vibration.

The range includes a choice of small size, extremely low noise sensors, through to high performance, shock resistant seismic sensors, high stability shock tolerant inertial and shock accelerometer tilt sensors as well as DC coupled capacitive vibration and movement detection sensors that are all suitable across for harsh-environments military and aerospace (AHRS and flight control systems, tactical IMU’s), oil & gas MWD, pile drivers and subsea and safety critical applications (industrial and instrumentation)

We offer advanced solutions from the world’s leading suppliers and manufacturers of movement detection sensors. Our close partner relationships enable us to offer you solutions beyond a standard product range and with our in-house expertise, we can develop and deliver custom designs by tailoring these to your exact specifications and requirements. We will always make sure you source the right solution in terms of performance, cost and specification.

Our technologies

Discover our range of technologies



Measuring static or dynamic acceleration forces and sensing orientation, micromachined microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) accelerometers are increasingly used within many applications such as portable electronics to detect changes in positions of devices.

Our range covers an extensive choice of accelerometers, from standard sensor solutions through to specialist and highly sensitive accelerometers that are used within mission-critical industries such aerospace and defence and the harshest and demanding of applications.

  • Low-power, digital-output, miniature LGA packages
  • MEMS-based, three-axis, measuring tilt, motion and shock
  • High performance
  • Unbeatable long-term bias
  • Superb levels of repeatability

Gyroscopes angular rate sensors

Measuring or maintaining rotational motion, MEMs gyroscopes are small inexpensive sensors that measure angular velocity. We partner with top-tier manufacturers to bring you sensors best suited to applications such as precision navigation and motion tracking and control.

Our range of gyroscopes and MEMS inertial sensors offer an unrivalled level of performance, including high bias stability, high-performance, superior linearity, increased signal to noise ratio and improved behaviour under harsh vibrations, shocks and temperature environments.

  • High-performance MEMS inertial sensor solutions
  • Best-in-class bias stability and angular random walk
  • Packaged, multi-axis inertial solutions

Tilt and vibration sensors

A specialist range of high-end capacitive MEMs sensors specially designed for strong motion/seismic vibration measurements from DC to medium frequencies.

These sensor solutions require extremely high resistance to repetitive shock, low noise, and need to perform flawlessly within a range of weather and temperature environments.

Key features:

  • High accuracy
  • Insensitivity to temperature and moisture
  • Very low noise
  • Tactical grade - built for rugged environments.
  • Guaranteed stability
  • No re-calibration or maintenance

We partner with a world-leading supplier of MEMs based motion sensors with over 25 years of development and expertise within military, aerospace, oil and gas and rail, suspension systems, bogie monitoring, train tilt and active suspension systems and safety-critical applications (industrial and instrumentation).
