ELECTRONICS: Dytran Instruments Inc. has just released a new unit to its line of industrial accelerometers. Model 3213M6 is a rugged, triaxial accelerometer which utilizes the latest in pizeoceramic shear technology coupled with two-wire internal IEPE electronics. Although not limited to this application, the model 3213M6 was designed specifically for industrial vibration monitoring. Model 3213M6 mounts with a centrally located thru 10-32 captive mounting screw. It weighs 59 gm and is packaged in a rugged, anodized aluminum housing.Featuring a single four-pin Brad Harrison connector and 360 degree cable orientation, the 3213M6 also operates at a high sensitivity (100 mV/g). Model 3213M6 is hermetically sealed and electrically isolated, making it an ideal unit for industrial monitoring applications.
Additional applications in which the 3213M6 can be used include walk about data collection and general purpose triaxial vibration measurements. Priced at $1,100.
Unlike industrial robots, which suffered a slight overall slump in 2012, service robots continue to be increasingly in demand. The majority are used for defense, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); and agriculture, such as milking robots.
