Low-Mass Triaxial Piezoelectric Accelerometer

Low-Mass Triaxial Piezoelectric Accelerometer

Meggitt Sensing Systems' Endevco model 2228C is a rugged low-mass triaxial piezoelectric accelerometer, designed to suit a variety of general vibration testing requirements. With a sensitivity of 2.8 pC/g, the Endevco model 2228C is designed to provide vibration measurements on three orthogonal axes with 10-32 receptacles to allow data collection from three separate output connections. These connections also offer a visual reference for the orthogonal axes being measured. The total package weighs 15 grams and minimizes mass loading on small structures and objects. Units are designed to operate over a temperature range of -55 to +177C (-67 to +350F), with mounting via two-hole screw or adhesive. The accelerometer is a self-generating device that requires no external power source for operation. Signal ground is isolated from the mounting surface of the unit. Low-noise, flexible coaxial cables are supplied for error-free operation and is available at specially discounted rates as part of the -R replacement sensor program.

The model 2228C is useful used in R&D, metrology, lighting systems, wireless equipment, space shuttle and solid rocket booster electronics assemblies, helicopter engines, combustion turbines and vacuum pump applications.
