ASXC Angular Accelerometer

The Jewell ASXC Series Fluid Rotor Angular Accelerometer is a force balanced servo accelerometer that uses a fluid-filled ring chamber to measure angular acceleration. The ASXC is currently used in a wide variety of applications such as many military and aviation flight controls including autopilot or aircraft stability and control systems or satellite stability.
