New Accelerometer Resists Mounting Strain

A novel annular shear sensor element that has high immunity to base strain and transverse acceleration is an advance design feature of a new triaxial accelerometer from Kistler Instrument. The 8762A series is available in 5g, 10g and 50g ranges with sensitivities from 1000mV/g to 100mV/g respectively. Newly designed electronics provide outstanding phase response and wide frequency range in low impedance, voltage mode output.

The 20mm cube shaped housing is made of lightweight, hard anodized aluminum and is ground isolated. The accelerometer has three 10-32 tapped holes for secure, stud mounting assuring reliable outputs in the three orthogonal planes. An industry standard 1/4-28, 4-pin connector is used. Typical applications include multi-channel measurements on automotive bodies and aircraft structures as well as general vibration testing.

Kistler is a worldwide supplier of precision instrumentation for the measurement of pressure, force and acceleration serving the R&D, Industrial and OEM Communities.
