Accelerometers Measure Slow Moving Events
Two new accelerometers from Kistler Instrument extend the measuring range with slow moving measuring requirements from zero to 300 Hz. Kistler 8310A25 measures to 25 g and 8310A50 measures to 50 g. Both use a micro-machined capacitive sensing element that provides stability over the -40 oF to 185 oF temperature range. At 17 grams each, these newest members of the K-Beam accelerometer family measure tilt and other static or dynamic conditions.
Both accelerometers are hermetically sealed and ground isolated in a welded Titanium enclosure. In addition to adhesive mounting, four 4-40 or M3 mounting screws may be used. Both integral and unattached cable versions are available. A DC voltage supply of 6 to 16 Volts is required.
These accelerometers extend the measuring range of the series from 2 g and 10 g versions currently available. Typical applications are found in vehicular NVH studies, aerospace tests, large structure studies, human movement measurements and automation applications.
