Measuring displacement using accelerometers


Displacement is the most easily understood vibration parameter, yet is the least commonly utilized in vibration analysis.

There is a common misconception that measuring displacement using an accelerometer is not possible or can lead to erroneous information. In reality, accelerometers have long been used to measure displacement. However, it is important to understand that displacement measured with an accelerometer is not the same displacement measured with shaft riders or eddy current style vibration transducers.
