Sherborne Sensors launches A820 Series Ultra-Low Range Dual Axis Servo Accelerometer

Sherborne Sensors, a global leader in the design, development and manufacture of sensors for military, aerospace and industrial applications has today announced the launch of its A820 Series DC-operated dual axis ultra-low range, servo accelerometers.

Developed from Sherborne Sensors’ successful A320 single axis accelerometer, the A820 is particularly suitable for deployment in structural health monitoring applications where its compact design and precisely aligned measurement axes simplify installation whilst significantly reducing cabling and installation costs that would otherwise arise from the use of two individual accelerometers.

The A820 offers full-scale acceleration ranges down to as little as ± 0.10g and up to ±2g, while also providing matchless discrimination down to micro-g levels. This makes the A820 a perfect choice for the recording of structural response during ambient vibrations and seismic disturbances. As a special option, the A820 is available with differing X and Y full-scale ranges to optimise the unit for specific applications where dissimilar sensitivities are required in each axis.

“We are delighted to be adding the A820 to our growing range of high precision inertial accelerometers which offer the highest levels of accuracy and reliability in order to meet the requirements of demanding aerospace, aviation, military and industrial applications,” said Mike Baker, Managing Director, Sherborne Sensors. “The A820 Series ultra-low range and compact design make it ideal for geophysical, seismic and civil engineering applications and any ultra-low acceleration studies which require DC response.”

Sherborne Sensors can customise all of its accelerometers and manufacture to comply with specific customer requirements within its AS9100C Quality Management System. In addition, all Sherborne Sensors products are meticulously tested and calibrated to international standards prior to shipment, and are accompanied by an industry exclusive two year comprehensive warranty.
