IMI Sensors Launches Two Differential Output Charge Accelerometers for Gas Turbine Bearing Monitoring

DEPEW, NY – IMI Sensors, manufacturer of industrial vibration monitoring instrumentation, announced the release of two new hazardous area approved, differential output charge accelerometers designed for use in high temperature applications.  IMI has developed these products for gas turbine monitoring, commissioning of nuclear power plants and machinery monitoring in high temperature environments.

Model EX615A42- offers a sensitivity of 100 pC/g, a measurement range of ±200 g peak and a frequency range (±5%) of 5 kHz.  Designed for use in environments up to 500 °F (260 °C), the sensor has a stainless steel housing with an integral 10 ft (3 m) armored, low-noise PTFE cable terminating in pigtails.

Model EX619A11- offers a sensitivity of 50 pC/g, a measurement range of ±500 g peak and a frequency range (±5%) of 3 kHz.  Designed for use in environments up to 900 °F (482 °C), the sensor has a Nickel 600 housing with an integral 7 ft (2.1 m) MI hardline cable terminating in a 2-pin MIL-C-5015 connector.

IMI offers several differential charge amplifiers to support the launch of these two products. Additional information about IMI's complete line of high temperature vibration sensors can be found at: https://www.imi-sensors.com/contentStore/mktg/IMI_Downloads/IMI-HighTemp_LowRes.pdf.
