BRUEL & KJAER BROADENS SCOPE OF
ACCELEROMETER PRODUCT RANGE
Bruel & Kjaer has broadened its vibration sensors product
range by adding more than 50 new types of products including
various accelerometers, force transducers and hammers.
The new product expansion reflects Bruel & Kjaers renewed
commitment to offer the most comprehensive line of high-performance,
high-quality, economical, rugged and lightweight uniaxial and
triaxial sensors for almost any application. The company also
supplies a wide variety of quality connectors, cables and mounting
options that ensure optimum measurement integrity, ease of set-up
and data reliability.
The product range expansion has been developed to meet the
companys growing customer demands for precision instrumentation.
Bruel & Kjaer has increased its focus on product development,
testing and quality to provide customer-dedicated solutions as well
as a high level of pre- and after-sales support.
To support the new product developments Bruel & Kjaer has invested
in new production facilities in Denmark. The new manufacturing
capability enables the company to react faster to market and
customer demands for precision instrumentation and also gives
the opportunity to perform exacting tests on new designs to fully
optimise product quality.
Bruel & Kjaer has also strengthened its dedicated team of in-house
engineering staff to support its continuous development of new
accelerometers and sensors. Building on the many years of Bruel
& Kjaer experience and knowledge the increased in-house
engineering department adds capacity not only to improve
existing accelerometers, but also to develop new versions and
make customer-specific variants of existing designs.
Two of the first products to emerge from the new accelerometer
development programme are the Miniature Triaxial DeltaTron®
Accelerometer Type 4524, which is ideal for automotive applications,
and the DeltaTron Accelerometer Type 4511 developed to address
The Miniature Triaxial DeltaTron® Accelerometer Type 4524 a
new lightweight, triaxial, piezoelectric, OrthoShear® accelerometer
addresses the needs of the automotive industry and is suitable
for: structural analysis measurements; multichannel modal analysis
measurements as well as modal measurements for automotive
body and power-train applications.
Ideal for use by civil and military helicopter manufacturers, the
Piezoelectric DeltaTron® Accelerometer Type 4511 is flight-test
certified. All the Type 4511 processes and materials comply with
MIL-STD-11268. The devices primary design objective has been
reliability under extreme conditions, yielding very high robustness
versus mechanical, electrical and environmental influences.
Applications include: flight test; measurement in harsh environments;
health usage monitoring systems (HUMS) and gearboxes.
Both the Type 4524 and Type 4511 accelerometers were developed
using the numerical modelling technique FEM (Finite Element Modelling).
Each accelerometer is individually calibrated and supplied with a
comprehensive calibration chart, using state-of-the-art, random FFT
technology, providing an 800-point, high-resolution calibration
(magnitude and phase), ultimately giving a unique characterisation
and securing the integrity of the vibration measurement.
