Original Press Release:

New High Sensitivity, DC Response Accelerometer for Automotive and Off-Highway Testing

August 7, 2006, Depew, NY, USA - The Vibration division of PCB Piezotronics (PCB®) has announced new Model 3711, a high sensitivity, MEMS DC (steady state) response accelerometer designed expressly for automotive and off-highway testing.

PCB's Model 3711 is gas damped, and provides micro g resolution and 10,000 g shock survivability. Several full-scale acceleration ranges are available, from 3 to 200 g, with a frequency response from DC to 1,500 Hz (± 5%). The sensor's footprint is 0.85 in. (21.6 mm) x 0.85 in. (21.6 mm) x 0.45 in. (11.4 mm) in a welded titanium case design, with a choice of either hermetic connector or integral cable version.

The accelerometer is well-suited for applications such as brake deceleration compliance certification; durability testing of vehicle radiators and air coolers; roll stiffness/static rollover threshold tests; vehicle/component test chamber instrumentation; and NVH and multi-axis motion test platforms. Any vibration sensing application requiring DC acceleration, high resolution, and high sensitivity, yet able to survive high g events, will benefit from this new accelerometer.
