Relative Acceleration Sensor

Measures the relative acceleration between a pair of translational flanges  Description The Relative Acceleration Sensor component generates an output signal proportional to the relative acceleration between two translational flanges. Equations $y={K}_{\mathrm{toUnit}}{\stackrel{.}{v}}_{\mathrm{rel}}$ ${f}_{a}=-{f}_{b}=0$ ${s}_{\mathrm{rel}}={s}_{b}-{s}_{a}$ ${v}_{\mathrm{rel}}={\stackrel{.}{s}}_{\mathrm{rel}}$ Variables
