New High Shock Accelerometers Measure Shock Events up to 60,000 g

Press Release Summary:

  • 3099A series features 1/4–28 integral mounting stud and flying leads to eliminate connector-related resonances
  • Miniature size of the sensor allows it to be mounted in spaces that are inaccessible to other types of accelerometers
  • Works in application environments, including high shock metal-to-metal impact, explosive bolts and drop-shock testing of consumer electronics

Original Press Release:

3099A: Mechanically & Electrically Filtered High Shock Accelerometer

Dytran Instruments, Inc. of Chatsworth, CA has introduced the 3099A IEPE Series of mechanically and electrically filtered high shock accelerometers that are available in a variety of measurement ranges.

This sensor was developed to measure high shock and other high amplitude, short duration events where high frequency “ringing” and zero shift phenomena can be a problem. The 3099A Series measures shock events up to 60,000 g without distortion or unwanted effects, thanks to its quartz sensing element and the combination of built-in mechanical and electrical filters. Quartz, a naturally poled single piezoelectric crystal, provides better stability of the sensitivity value over time and across a wide range of operating temperatures.

The 3099A family of sensors is case isolated to avoid ground loop interference and structure-borne electrical noise and the stainless-steel housing is hermetically sealed for use in wet or humid environments. The miniature size of the sensor allows it to be mounted in spaces that are inaccessible to other types of accelerometers. All models feature a 1/4–28 integral mounting stud and flying leads to eliminate connector-related resonances. A compatible cable, Model 6869A, ends in a 10–32 plug.

The 3099A Series works in a variety of application environments, including high shock metal-to-metal impact, explosive bolts, drop-shock testing of consumer electronics, stage separation testing, impact tools, and pyroshock events.
