I have been looking for some time to source a vibration sensor that I can mount
on motors, etc, could you please tell me if you have any versions which produce
a 0-10v or 4-10mA output or even a intelligent sensor which can communicate via


The ADXL203 and ADXL001 family might be good starting points. Please note that
none of our sensors offer a 4-to-20mA interface and the ones that do offer an
analog output are 0 to 5V (and lower).
We do offer some analog output devices, but our main focus is functional
integration. For example, the ADIS16000/ADIS16229 provides full signal
processing for vibration, with the key parts being FFT and spectral alarms for
process control and machine health applications. I have attached some material
which might help you.

Analog Wiki pages provide some insights on this, through our demo tool that is
just rolling out :
