Meggitt Sensing Systems' Endevcomodel 7240C is a miniature piezoelectric accelerometer with low bandwidth flat to 30 kHz was designed for general purpose high-frequency vibration measurements.

Endevco model 7240C offers low base strain sensitivity with a total package weight of 4.8 gm, eliminating mass loading concerns. The unit is hermetically sealed to prevent against environmental contamination and is a self-generating device which requires no external power source for operation.

Signal ground of the Endevco model 7240C is connected to the outer case of the unit. When used with one of the supplied isolated mounting studs, the accelerometer is electrically isolated from the ground.
