Miniature ICP* Accelerometer with Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS)

 

Depew, NY - Miniature Model 352A56 ICP® TEDS accelerometer from the Vibration Division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc. occupies a small 0.26 x 0.57 x 0.30 inch (6.6 x 14.5 x 7.6 mm) footprint and weighs a mere 0.06 ounces (1.8 grams) for minimal mass loading of the test article. The device is ideally suited for vibration studies and stress screening of miniature components such as circuit boards, disc drive mechanisms, and other electronic items; modal analysis of small structures and satellite components; vibration measurement of scaled models; and biomedical research.

 

TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) accelerometers conform to the IEEE P 1451.4 standard, which defines a mixed-mode interface that retains the traditional analog sensor signal, but adds a low-cost serial digital link to access a TEDS embedded in the sensor for self-identification and self-description. The embedded memory chip eliminates the need to manually input sensor parameters such as manufacturer, model number, serial number, calibration date, and sensitivity when configuring a system.

 

The ICP® unit is structured with a shear mode, piezoceramic sensing ceramic element and built-in signal conditioning microelectronics to produce clean, low-impedance voltage output signals capable of being transmitted over long cable lengths. Measurements from Vi to 10,000 Hz may be accurately measured (± 5%).
