Flight Test Accelerometer uses aircraft on-board voltage.

Press Release Summary:

Flight Test Accelerometer uses aircraft on-board voltage.

Dec 04, 2015 - Suited for use in flight testing applications, hermetically sealed 3326A Series works with standard aircraft on-board power supplies from +20 to +32 Vdc. Two models are available, with sensitivities of 10 and 100 mV/g, and both feature ceramic sensing elements operating in shear mode and packaged in titanium housing. Low-noise accelerometers feature ¼-28, 4-pin radial connector and miniature thru-hole mounting, allowing sensor to be turned 360° prior to be secured.

Flight Test Accelerometer Utilizing Standard Aircraft On-Board Voltage, 3326A Series

Press release date: Jun 29, 2011

Chatsworth, CA - Dytran Instruments, Inc. (www.dytran.com) a leading manufacturer of piezoelectric and DC MEMS accelerometers, force and pressure transducers and associated electronics, has introduced the 3326A series of low noise accelerometers, ideally suited for use in flight testing applications.

A distinguishing feature of the 3326A series is that the accelerometers are compatible with standard aircraft on-board power supplies (+20 to +32 VDC). Units are part of Dytran's line of VDC powered instrumentation, and as such, may be compatible with existing installations from other manufacturer's which use similar principles.

Available in two different models with sensitivities of 10 mV/g and 100 mV/g, the 3326A series feature ceramic sensing elements operating in shear mode, packaged in a rugged titanium housing. Design of the 3326A series incorporate a ¼-28 4-pin radial connector and miniature thru-hole mounting, which allows for the sensor to be turned 360 degrees prior to securing, aiding the user during sensor installation. The Dytran 3326A series weigh 10 grams, are hermetically sealed for reliable operation in high humidity and dirty environments, and case isolated to avoid EMI/ground loop interference.
