Model SR-107VFR angular accelerometer allows the user to change the scale factor and range to obtain accuracy and readout match. Full measurement range is adjusted from ±1 to ±100 radians per sq sec with a single external resistor change. The user also has the ability to select a dc blocking option and define the associated cutoff frequency since virtually all angular acceleration measurements are either transitory or periodic.
