Model 7292-XM1 Variable Capacitance Accelerometer
measures low-level accelerations in Aerospace and
Endevco's new Model 7292-XM1 utilizes unique variable
capacitance microsensors for the measurement of low-level
accelerations in rugged aerospace and automotive environments.
Because it can respond to DC accelerations (steady-state events),
the accelerometer is ideal for measuring whole-body motion
immediately after being subjected to shock motion and in the
presence of severe vibration inputs. Depending upon the particular
model (X number), range is 2 to 100 g's full-scale. Higher/special
ranges are available. Over-range stops are provided.
The accelerometer is an excellent replacement for the popular
2262 series of piezoresistive models, which are used in many
flight-test and automotive applications. The 10-32 mounting and
electrical interface of the 7292-XM1 accelerometer are similar to
that of the 2262 series and is compatible with most bridge
instrumentation. Shunt calibration simulation is included as part
of the unit.
Designed to provide years of reliable service, the Model 7292-XM1
is packaged in a ruggedly designed, stainless steel, hermetically
sealed case. A 30" shielded cable is provided.
The 7292-XM1 accelerometer operates from a 10 VDC source
and provides a high-level (±2 volt) differential, DC-coupled,
low-impedance output. The use of gas damping allows for the
near-critically damped characteristics found in the 2262 series
of accelerometers without thermally induced changes in frequency
response. The 7292-XM1 accelerometer is insensitive to magnetic
fields and requires a warm-up time of only one millisecond.
