Accelerometers: IMI Sensors

December 5, 2011

IMI Sensors, a division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc., announces the new low-cost high temperature ICP®accelerometer model HT602D01 for vibration measurements on paper machines and for many other higher temperature applications. These high temperature ceramic shear ICP®accelerometers include a 2-Pin MIL-C-501 side-exit connector in a low profile housing.  Heat environments up to +325°F/+163°C can be tolerated.

The sensing element of these accelerometers provides a sensitivity of (±10%) 100 mV/g (10.2 mV/(m/s²)) with a frequency range of (±3dB) 30 to 480,12.5.11 IMI Sensors body000 cpm (0.5 to 8000 Hz).  This sensor can be used as drop-in replacement for existing accelerometers and offers a higher temperature range than many competing sensor types.
