Many accelerometers have an output which is defined in pC/gn.
These are referred to as "charge type" (pC = pico Coulomb : gn= gravitational unit).
Accelerometers which were developed later had integrated into them an amplifier "Conditioning Amplifier" which provided an output in mV/gn.
Measurement systems whose input is expecting a signal which is in mV/gn can not use "Charge type accelerometers" unless a Charge converter is used.
Thus, the charge converter "converts" a signal which is in pC/gnto mV/gn.
Note, the units can be pC/m/sē or mV/m/sē
This program calculates the output sensitivity given the charge sensitivity and the conversion factor of the charge converter.
pC/gn or pC/m/sē
mV/gn or mV/m/sē
