Kistler Instrument Corporation (www.kistler.com), a worldwide supplier of precision sensors, systems and instrumentation for the dynamic measurement of pressure, force, torque and acceleration, has announced the debut of Type 8688A, a globally patented (U.S. patent number 12,088,325) series of low-cost high-sensitivity IEPE triaxial accelerometers, with optional TEDS, designed to simultaneously measure vibration in three orthogonal axes.
in ranges of ±5g, ±10g and ±50g, with choice of 100, 500, or 1000 mV/g
sensitivities, the Type 8688A IEPE
triaxial range incorporates Kistler PiezoBeam® technology, with an integral
ceramic cantilevered beam, enclosed within a lightweight (less than 6.7 grams
for 1000 mV/g), robust, welded titanium housing. Sensing elements are designed
to provide outstanding amplitude and phase response over a wide frequency range
and are temperature compensated using Kistler’s own patented methods. Type 8688A sensors feature an integral
low-noise charge amplifier that converts the charge signal to a proportional
high level voltage signal, at an output impedance of less than 500 ohms. Units
are ground isolated when mounted with a mounting clip or adhesive mounting
Type 8688A triaxial accelerometers offer an integral 4-pin connector,
facilitating easy mounting and installation into space confined areas. Sensors
may be mounted on any of three faces. The accelerometer operates directly from
the internal power source found in most FFT analyzers, Kistler Piezotron® power
supply couplers or any industry-compatible power source.
With its industry-exclusive low mass design, high
sensitivity, high dynamic range and low noise operation, this precision
triaxial accelerometer series is ideal for multi-channel modal and structural
analyses of small components or subsystems, aerospace and automotive vehicle
testing, and select general purpose vibration sensing applications,
particularly those where mass loading may be a concern.
