Accelerometer will work in water at depths of 100m

30 January 2012

Hansford Sensors has introduced a submersible IP68 rated accelerometer, which is able to measure vibration levels on rotating machinery with partial or complete immersion in water at depths of up to 100 metres. These latest industrial accelerometers are ideal for helping maintenance engineers to detect and prevent defects caused for example by imbalance, misalignment, cavitation, bearing wear and gear or drive belt problems.

The latest IP68 submersible accelerometers are supplied with either an integrated waterproof silicon cable or an integrated PUR cable, which provides additional resistance to oil. The range is also available as ATEX certified, for operation in intrinsically safe areas where the sensors can be exposed to explosive gases or chemicals, and can be supplied with a choice of 4-20mA, ac or velocity outputs, and as either top or side entry.

The first publc viewing of this new sensor will be at Maintec.
