Miniature triaxial accelerometers can take the heatWith an operating temperature range from -54degC to +165degC, the Type 8766A miniature triaxial accelerometers from Kistler Instruments are suitable for use in harsh environments such as automotive engine bay and under vehicle measurements, aerospace subsystem vibration testing and industrial quality control applications.

The four models in the range, +/-50g, +/-100g, +/-250g and +/-500g, use the Kistler PiezoStar shear element design which provides a wide operating frequency range and outstanding long-term precision and stability. The sensor design combines PiezoStar crystals and integral hybrid microelectronics to achieve very low sensitivity variation over the wide operating temperature range, compared with quartz and ceramic sensing element designs. The hermitically sealed, welded titanium, ground isolated IP68 housing permits operation in harsh, dirty or wet environments and a TEDS (Transducer Electronics Data Sheet) option is available to simplify installation and set-up.

Mounting by a central tapped hole on each of three sides of the cube design gives mounting flexibility and allows the miniature 4-pin ceramic connector to be positioned throughout 360 degrees for convenient cable orientation. Alternatively, wax, adhesive or magnetic mounting may be used where stud mounting is not possible. The Type 8766A triaxial accelerometers can be powered by any industry standard IEPE (Integrated Electronic Piezoelectric) compatible power source.
