Rugged DC Accelerometers for steady state and shock measurements
Sept. 11, 2008 - Measurement Specialties has introduced two rugged and economically priced DC accelerometers for steady state and transient measurement in harsh environments.
11, 2008 – Measurement Specialties has introduced two rugged and
economically priced DC accelerometers for steady state and transient
measurement in harsh environments. The compact, hermetically sealed
Models 3801A and 4801A incorporate gas-damped MEMS sensing elements
with wide frequency response. High performance applications include
flight and vehicle testing, transportation measurements, mining, ship
shock and environmental testing.
Offered in ranges from ±2g to ±2000g, the accelerometers are suitable
for both low-level and high-end transient shock measurements. Integral
over-range stops provide shock protection to over 10,000g without
Model 3801A has a mV output signal for shock pulse measurements. Model
4801A has a signal-conditioned, amplified output for low level
measurements. A custom ASIC in Model 4801A provides high integral
temperature compensation over a wide operating temperature range from
-55°C to 125°C.
The new accelerometers are easy to install, with the popular 10-32 stud
mounting and 5-pin side mount connector. Both offer high capability for
their size, and attractive pricing.
Measurement Specialties, Inc., designs and manufactures a wide variety
of sensors and transducers to measure precise ranges of physical
characteristics including pressure, force, vibration, position,
humidity and temperature.
