Modal Triaxial Accelerometer with
PiezoSmart™ Transducer.

Kistler is pleased to announce a new family of
ceramic shear triaxial accelerometers, the
Type 8762A... and Type 8762A...M10 TEDS
(Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) compatible

The Type 8762A... is available in 5 g, 10 g and 50 g ranges
with sensitivity from 1000 mV/g to 100 mV/g respectively.
The Type 8762A...M10 is identical to the Type 8762A...
but is also has TEDS capability in compliance with the
IEEE P1451.4 standard. These PiezoSmart sensors provide
conventional analog operation and TEDS mode operation. In
particular, the analog mode the performance and operation
is identical to the conventional lowimpedance voltage mode
Piezotron sensors, also known as the industry standard IEPE
(Integrated Electronic Piezoelectric). 
In the TEDS mode, using an IEEE P1451.4 compliant signal
conditioner permits reading and writing to the internal sensor

The 20 mm cube accelerometer uses a ceramic annular
shear sensing element technology and a ground isolated
housing with three 10-32 tapped holes and an industry
standard 1/4-28, 4-pin connector. In addition to adhesive
mounting, the three 10-32 tapped holes can be used flexible
stud mounting on a test object fully utilizing the cube accelerometer
design. In addition, the three tapped holes provide reliable
mounting for calibration of each orthogonal axis.

These new accelerometers are ideal for modal analysis of
medium to large test objects. The wide frequency response
from 0,5 Hz to 6 kHz (5 %) and tight sensitivity standardization
(5 %) offers a diverse range of measurement options using
one sensor. Any Kistler power supply coupler or industry
standard IEPE (Integrated Electronic Piezoelectric)
compatible power source will power these accelerometers.
