High Temperature Triaxial Accelerometer

Dytran Instruments have added to their range, a very small three-axis high temperature accelerometer. The Dytran model 3443C is a triaxial, charge mode vibration monitoring accelerometer, designed to reliably operate in temperatures up to 260°C.

Weighing just 10 grams, the Dytran model 3443C features ceramic shear sensing elements mounted in a hermetically sealed, lightweight titanium housing.

This sensor is ideal for use in a variety of vibration monitoring applications including engine vibration studies, exhaust system analysis and industrial vibration monitoring, especially where mass loading is a concern, since this sensor weighs in at only 10 grams. The 3443C high temperature accelerometer is capable of operating under extreme temperatures, while at the same time providing the high levels of reliability, durability and accuracy that is offered with standard laboratory sensors.

The sensor utilizes two 3.7mm diameter through holes for mounting, and two 6-32 threaded screws are supplied for this purpose. Three 10-32 radial connectors are provided for connecting low noise cable assemblies for the output signals. The charge sensitivity for this sensor is typically 2.7 pC/g, with a measurement range up to 1800g, and it has a 10kHz upper frequency range.

The titanium housing measures just 21.5 x 12.7 x 7.6mm, and the X, Y, and Z connectors are clearly laser marked on the sensor.
