Meggitt Sensing Systems' Endevco
model 6233C is a highly rugged, high-temperature piezoelectric charge output
accelerometer, designed for continuous operation to +482C (+900F) with long Mean Time Before
Failure (MTBF), making it useful for the high-precision vibration monitoring of
high-temperature jet and turboprop engines, helicopter and rotorcraft HUMS, gas
turbines and nuclear power plant machinery and equipment.
With available standard ranges of 10, 50 and 100 pC/g, the
Endevco model 6233C offers a highly balanced differential output, performance stability
over temperature and a wide operational bandwidth. Units are case isolated and
feature standard three-point ARINC mounting and a rugged 2-pin 7/16-27 UNS 2A
threaded receptacle. As a self-generating device, the accelerometer requires no
external power source for operation. At such high temperatures, the use of a
charge amplifier or remote charge converter that can accept a 100 O source
resistance is required.
Automakers are on the prowl for lighter weight materials to make vehicles less heavy and more fuel efficient, and Nanosteel is one of the companies hoping to take advantage of this opportunity with their lightweight automotive steel of the same name.
