New Accelerometer Series Measures in Three Axes
A unique annular shear sensor element that exhibits a high immunity to base strain and transverse acceleration is used in the new 8798A accelerometer series from Kistler Instrument. This Ceramic Shear design enables precise vibration measurements in three mutually perpendicular directions. An advanced hybrid charge amplifier design provides a wide operating frequency range.
The 8798A series is available in three ranges of 5, 10 and 50g with sensitivities of 1,000, 500, 100 mV/g respectively. The three built-in IEPE electronic impedance converters provide a low impedance voltage output signal. These CE compliant accelerometers can be powered by any Kistler 5100 series PIEZOTRONÂ® coupler/signal conditioner or by any commercially available IEPE voltage mode piezoelectric sensor power supply. They can be installed on a test object using wax or a mounting stud.
The low weight of the 8798A, is highly desirable in measurement applications on small structures where mass loading must be kept to a minimum. The aluminum housing is epoxy sealed and hard anodized coated to provide ground isolation.
Kistler is a worldwide supplier of precision instrumentation for the measurement of pressure, force and acceleration serving the R&D, Industrial and OEM Communities.
