Bruel and Kjaer is launching a new range of versatile DC Response Accelerometers suitable for testing dynamic acceleration effects in a number of applications, from automotive to aerospace.
Designed to be incredibly robust, the new micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) DC response accelerometers can withstand high mechanical shocks of up to 10,000g and have been gas-damped, making them resistant to temperatures ranging from -54 to +121degC.
Suitable for measuring low-frequency vibrations, motion and the tilt of objects under constant force, the DC accelerometers can be used for studying acceleration effects within many industries, such as aerospace - to test aircraft, missiles, helicopters and satellites - and automotive manufacturing to test airbags and seats.
The accelerometers can also be used for railways, ground transportation testing, structural testing and even studies on whole-body motion.
Currently available in 36 variants, Bruel and Kjaer's DC response accelerometers are individually calibrated to provide a specified frequency range and offer two operating temperature ranges to suit customer requirements.
