Miniature Triaxial Accelerometer with
PiezoStar® Sensing Elements.

Kistler is pleased to announce the new miniature,
high temperature triaxial center-hole Type 8765A250M5
accelerometer using Kistler PiezoStar Crystals.

This miniature accelerometer weights 6,4 gram only, has
a measuring range of ±250 g and a sensitivity of 20 mV/g.
The center-hole allows easy mounting. The accelerometer
operates from -54 °C to +165 °C using a welded hermetic
and ground isolated housing with a miniature 4-pin ceramic
insulated connector for reliable measurements. The
accelerometer uses Kistler PiezoStar crystals and high
gain integral hybrid microelectronics providing very low
sensitivity variation over the operating temperature range,
compared to quartz and ceramic element designs.

Applications include automotive under the hood and under
the vehicle testing and subsystem vibration testing for
aerospace applications. The accelerometer is ground
isolated, in addition the optional Kistler shielded cables
are known for offering high signal integrity for the intended
applications. The center-hole mounting permits flexibility
for 360 °C orientation of the cable, which allows a wide
selection of mounting possibilities. The Type 8765A250M5
offers high sensitivity over a wide frequency range of
1 … 9 kHz (5 %) resolving a wide range of vibration
measurements using a single accelerometer. Any Kistler
power supply coupler, or industry standard IEPE
(Integrated Electronic Piezo Electric) compatible power
source will power the accelerometer.
