Honeywell is the recognized industry leader in accelerometers for aerospace inertial navigation, guidance and control, industrial measurement, and for measurement-while-drilling in the energy services business.
With more than three million shipped since 2001, Honeywell’s quartz-based accelerometers have earned a reputation for being the industry standard because of their unparalleled accuracy, durability and quality.
Today, we’re proud to offer a range of accelerometers designed to meet the most demanding performance requirements for applications in:
- Navigation: our highest performance grade for the most demanding applications
- Control and Measurement: economical but reliable
- Oil and gas: specifically designed for the rigors of energy exploration
Q-Flex Accelerometers for Navigation, Control and Measurement
Honeywell's Q-FLEX accelerometers feature a patented Q-Flex etched-quartz-flexure seismic system and their amorphous quartz proof-mass structure provides excellent bias, scale factor and axis alignment stability.
The Q-FLEX QA3000, QA2000, QA750, and QA650 and are used extensively in avionics, surface and marine navigation and industrial applications around the world.
Q-Flex Accelerometers for Oil and Gas
In addition, we offer a modified QFLEX accelerometer class designed specifically to tolerate the most demanding measurement-while-drilling (MWD) and wireline environments (up to 200oC and high shock/vibration) while providing precision accuracy, stability and reliability. The QAT160, QAT185 and MiniQare the core MWD sensors in this portfolio.
ACCELEREX Accelerometers for Navigation
Honeywell's ACCELEREX resonating beam accelerometer (RBA) measures acceleration as a function of the frequency difference between two sets of vibrating quartz beams. The RBA500 is primarily used to supplement GPS navigation systems and is a good choice where frequency output, high-g, small size, low power and lightweight are necessary.

Honeywell Accelerometer Senses Distant Earthquake
The precision resonating beam accelerometer Ron was testing in Redmond, Washington, picked up vibrations from an earthquake off the coast of Alaska.
What are high temperature accelerometers and how do they work?
Accelerometers are tools used to measure proper acceleration, which is the rate of velocity change of a body in its own instantaneous rest frame.
