The new, competitively priced Type 8315 single-axis accelerometer from Kistler Instruments is suited to low-frequency applications, including automobile ride quality, wind tunnel investigations and aerospace testing where structural vibration and dynamics are used to assess performance, reliability and integrity parameters. Other R&D applications include human motion studies, robotics and platform motion control systems.
Kistler's Type 8315 K-Beam capacitive MEMS accelerometer is suitable for use in R&D and OEM applications where precision, reliability and durability are demanded. Six measuring ranges from +/-2g to +/- 200g are available with a frequency response of 0 to 1kHz (0-250Hz for 2g), enclosed in a choice of hard anodised aluminium or welded titanium housings. The sensor design is optimised for low-frequency applications common to Aviation/Aerospace, Automotive, Civil Engineering Structure, Seismic and other R&D studies. A temperature output is provided for use where external temperature compensation of the output signal is required.
Wide supply voltage range, 5 to 50V DC and 6000gpk shock rating combined with the availability of a temperature output and integrated signal conditioning make the Type 8315 very versatile. A choice of adhesive, threaded stud and magnetic mounting bases and connection options facilitate installation.
