Meggitt Sensing Systems now offers the Endevco model 7280 series, a family of lightly damped single axis high-g piezoresistive shock accelerometers designed to support pyroshock, weapons testing, high-shock data recorders, missiles, munitions and other demanding requirements. The sensors offer survivability to four times over-range, minimum shift after shock, higher impedance and lower power consumption than legacy models.
Offered in two ranges of 20,000 g and 60,000 g, the units incorporate Meggitt s new lightly damped MEMS sensing element, designed for lower power consumption. Input voltage can be customer-specified, with 10V offered as standard. The series model 7280A incorporates the sensing element within an industry-standard screw mount package, while the model 7280AM4 is offered within an industry-standard stud mount package. Occupying the same footprint as the Endevco 7270A series, the 7280A is designed to serve as a drop-in replacement for applications in which a legacy sensor may be in use, but where exceptional survivability may be prioritized over higher bandwidth, as well as where the use of a sensor with light damping may offer certain testing advantages.
