New High g Digital Accelerometers from API Technologies Measure up to 500 g

ORLANDO, FL — May 22, 2012 — API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) (“API” or the “Company”), a leading provider of RF/microwave, microelectronics, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, announced today its new high g digital accelerometer from its Sensors line of inertial measurement products. Measuring up to 500 g, this accelerometer is ideal for shock detection and sports equipment safety testing.

“These digital accelerometers measure higher g ranges than ever before and are ready to use within minutes of unpacking the box,” said Larry Howanitz, Vice President, EIS & Sensors divisions of API Technologies. Available in ±500 g and ±250 g versions, the unit comes in single axis (#15208A), dual axes (#25208A), and triaxial (#35208A) models.

The accelerometers are user configurable and contain the accelerometer(s), temperature sensor, signal processor, three analog outputs, and an RS485 interface that connects directly to the user’s PC. The accelerometers come fully calibrated with calibration data stored inside the sensor. Ruggedized construction makes them ideal for harsh environments. Additional features include: high accuracy and linearity over a wide temperature range; power and connector kits for easy set-up; and application assistance and data analysis tools.
