Mini PiezoStar TEDS Accelerometer Provides High Resolution and Wide Dynamic Range


The Type 8715A5000M5 and TEDS version Type 8715A5000T are new IEPE PiezoStar Single Axis, Center Hole Accelerometers. The low mass low profile, hermetic accelerometer features a 5-44 side connector and integral ground isolation. The sensor construction utilizes shear cut PiezoStar crystals and high temperature internal microelectronics impedance converter to achieve industry leading temperature stability. The accelerometer provides high measurement resolution with over 100 dB of dynamic range.

  • Highest stability for the operational temperature range

  • High operating temperature: 54 165 C

  • Wide frequency range (5 %): 2 10 000 Hz

  • 5 000 g range, 1 mV/g

  • Low profile, low mass, hermetic, ground isolated

  • Small mounting footprint and 360 cable orientation

  • TEDS Option

This low-profile high temperature IEPE accelerometer family provides solutions in hard-tomount locations, when cable orientation is important or height restrictions apply. Target applications include product qualification/acceptance testing and structural/vibroacoustic and shock testing for lightweight structures. The hermetic sealing permits operation in harsh, dirty or wet environments. Integral ground isolation provides signal integrity in electrically noisy environments as well as eliminating ground loops which degrade signal quality.
