Triaxial accelerometers for high precision, high durability applications
06 October 2011
Kistler Type 8688A series instrument grade triaxial accelerometers are suitable for applications requiring high-precision, low-frequency measurements and high-durability packaging. The low mass, hermetically sealed (IP68) titanium cube measures just 12.5mm and combines Kistler’s PiezoBeam technology with an integrated PiezoTron charge converter to produce a triaxial accelerometer that has an exceptional sensitivity-to-size ratio.
Available in 5, 10 and 50g versions, the 8688A series accelerometers combine an 0.5 to 5,000Hz frequency range with excellent phase accuracy and shock survivability, a specification suited to a wide variety of applications ranging from aerospace ground vibration testing; flight test; structural dynamics and vibration assessments to automotive laboratory testing and vehicle ride assessments.
The ground isolated mounting clip can be used in three sensor orientations for mounting flexibility. The primary mounting surface has a 10-32 UNF threaded hole for use with a ground isolated screw-on adhesive or magnetic mounting base.
As an option, the accelerometers can be supplied with TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheets) IEEE1451.4 capability.
