Meggitt Sensing Systems has announced that the Endevco 35A miniature triaxial ISOTRON piezoelectric accelerometer supports the high-precision shock and vibration testing of hard drives, electronic peripherals, engine rotor and stator blades, as well as their associated components.
The shear mode Endevco 35A provides a complete measurement package for the collection of IEPE acceleration data across three orthogonal axes, the company says. The integral internal amplifier converts high-impedance accelerometer charge input into low-impedance voltage output. Output is transmitted through the same wires that supply required 4 mA constant current power. The signal ground is connected to the outer case. The unit is delivered with pre-installed fine gauge (34 AWG) wires as output leads, all of which are easily field repairable. A new lead assembly may further be factory reinstalled. Also included is the four-conductor Endevco 3027AM5-120 cable terminating in three BNC connectors. Units weigh just 1.1 grams without cable, and are adhesive mounted for minimized mass loading.
The unit can be used for the triaxial shock and vibration testing of electronic components and equipment; scaled model vibration; automotive component vibration monitoring; and biomedical research.
