Vibration is periodic mechanical oscillation. Vibration causes acceleration proportional to the square of the frequency of oscillation, so a high-frequency vibration with very small displacement causes very high acceleration values.
In the voltage divider mode, the output voltage is dependant on the ratio of the internal resistors RWA and RWB and not their absolute values. Because of this, the temperature coefficient is reduced when compared to the Rheostat mode. It is measured in ppm/°C.
The maximum allowable voltage across resistor terminals.
Note: the resistor terminals have no limitations on polarity with respect to each other.
