Miniature Triaxial Accelerometer Suits Structural Test Duties

The Type 8763B, a miniature IEPE triaxial accelerometer with voltage output, offers simultaneous shock and vibration measurements on three mutually perpendicular axes with optional TEDS capabilities (per IEEE 1451.4) to meet the needs of larger channel-count automotive, aerospace and general laboratory testing applications. Available in six models with measurement ranges from ±50 g to ±2000 g and in sensitivities from 100 mV/g to 2.5 mV/g, the low-noise Type 8763B incorporates Kistler’s own shear element sensing technology, ensuring high base strain immunity. The device is packaged in a lightweight, hermetically sealed titanium housing, with a choice of an automotive testing industry-standard 4-pin, ¼-28 style connector or a M4.5 mini four-pin connector as typically required for commercial aviation and other aerospace applications. Models are rugged to 5,000 g shock. The Type 8763B is suited for the dynamic vibration and shock testing of lightweight structures, package drop testing and larger channel-count modal and structural analysis applications.
