C-7232 sensor is completely free of mercury and therefore does not contain toxic parts, or that could harm the environment. It is specifically designed to detect movement and vibration. Not affected by mounting position, providing a similar level of sensitivity regardless of it, being equally suitable for use in circuits analogue and digital. The sensor reacts when it is unbalanced by an impact or vibration, causing a brief change of status (eg moving from normally open to normally closed or vice versa). The time disturbance of the sensor depend on the amount of energy received at the time of impact. The low contact resistance of this sensor make it ideal for incorporation in both new designs and in existing designs.
