Product News: Sensors Monitors & Transducers
MEMS Shock Accelerometers measure and survive high-G events.
Press Release Summary:
July 20, 2012 - Series 3501, stud-mount, and 3503/3991 screw-mount piezoresistive shock accelerometers can measure long duration transient motion, as well as respond/survive extremely fast rise times. Available in 20,000 and 60,000 G measurement ranges, rugged, miniature sensors feature light damping to reduce resonance amplification and mechanical stops for over-range protection. Available in packaged and OEM surface-mount configurations, units are suited for explosive environments and impact blast loading.
