Low Powered, High Temperature Accelerometer for Down-Hole Drilling Applications, Model 3003B

Press release date: August 8, 2012

Chatsworth, California, USA - 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 model 3003B, a high performance triaxial IEPE accelerometer, capable of operating at temperatures up to +347°F (+185°C) and was designed for down-hole drill head vibration monitoring.

Sensors developed for down-hole vibration monitoring must be able to deliver accurate and reliable data, while simultaneously tolerating harsh conditions. Critical characteristics of these sensors include a miniature design, high temperature operation, and the ability to operate at low power levels. Dytran's model 3003B is ideal for such applications, as it is packaged in a miniature titanium housing with a vertical height of just 0.365 inches, is capable of reliable operation at temperatures up to +347°F (+185°C), and was specially designed to operate from +4.0 to +5.5 VDC compliance voltage.

The Dytran model 3003B is offered with a sensitivity of 2 mV/g and 500g range, and is designed with adhesive mounting capabilities. Weighing just 6 grams, units utilize incorporate four permanently attached 22-inch long lead wires.
