New Capacitive Accelerometer
New from PCB Piezotronics is series 3700 capacitive accelerometers,
ideal for true DC response and low frequency vibration measurements
on lifts, vehicles, aircraft, buildings, bridges, etc.
Packaged in rugged titanium housings, a series of single and triaxial models
are available to measure acceleration as low as 20 micro-g to over 200 g
within a frequency bandwidth from 0 (DC) to 1000 Hz.
Built-in microelectronics, which operate from any 5 to 30 Vdc laboratory
or battery supply, provide a conveniently standardised sensitivity and
low noise output signal capable of being driven over long cables through
harsh environments with no loss in quality.
The compact, low mass sensors with a typical weight of just 15 grams
have an overload capability of up to 3000g for mishandling protection
and will operate over a temperature range of -40 to +85 Deg.C.
The 3700 accelerometers are supported with a choice of capacitive
sensor signal conditioners, cable and mounting accessories, including
an easy-mount clip and a triaxial mounting block.
