Meggitt Sensing Systems announced the global market launch of the Endevco model 7253D triaxial Isotron accelerometer, designed for applications requiring the measurement of shock and vibration simultaneously in three mutually perpendicular axes. Primary applications for the Endevco model 7253D include the testing of aircraft engines, industrial engines, missiles, aircraft/engine/weapons components, spacecraft components, flight testing and industrial machinery.
Available in sensitivities of 10 mV/g or 100 mV/g, the Endevco model 7253D is small and lightweight with a broad frequency response. Features include thru-hole mounting for 360-degree cable orientation, hermetically sealed titanium housing to protect against environmental contamination, and signal ground isolated from the mounting surface by a hard anodized insulator.
Each axis utilizes an Endevco type P-8 shear piezoelectric sensing element in conjunction with a hybrid charge amplifier to provide a low-impedance output in a two-wire IEPE system configuration. A constant current excitation of 2 to 20 mA is required for each axis, with the electrical connection made to each axis through a 4-pin connector.
