With increasingly high-speed drives dominating the storage market, limiting the levels of angular acceleration perceived by the drive while it is housed within its enclosure is key to preventing drive damage and failures, which can ultimately result in critical and costly down time and/or data loss.
BEI Systron Donner Inertial Division produces precision gyroscopes, accelerometers and inertial sensors and systems which measure linear and angular acceleration for application in instrumentation, stabilization and feedback control systems used in precision guided munitions, tactical missiles, torpedoes, space systems and for many commercial and industrial applications.
The first one, from the starting of the machine until the arm reaches the nominal rotation speed, is characterised by a constant angular acceleration ([epsilon] = constant) and a rapidly increasing angular speed.
It is introduced like this the "false" elements which can modify the length, but not the position, so always angular speed and angular acceleration of such element are null.
Stability is defined mechanically as resistance to both linear and angular acceleration, or resistance to disruption of equilibrium.
