New triaxial PiezoBeam® accelerometer offers best-in-class sensitivity to size ratio

The Kistler Type 8688A series instrument grade triaxial accelerometers are ideal for use in a multitude of R&D and OEM applications where high-precision, low-frequency measurements and high-durability packaging are absolute requirements

The low mass, hermitically sealed (IP68) titanium cube measures just 12.5 mm and combines Kistler's PiezoBeam technology with an integrated PiezoTron charge converter to produce a triaxial accelerometer that has an exceptional sensitivity to size ratio. Available in 5, 10 and 50 g versions, the 8688A series accelerometers combine an 0.5 to 5000 Hz frequency range with excellent phase accuracy and shock survivability, a specification suited to a wide variety of applications ranging from aerospace ground vibration testing; flight test; structural dynamics and vibration assessments to automotive laboratory testing and vehicle ride assessments.

The ground isolated mounting clip can be used in three sensor orientations for mounting flexibility. The primary mounting surface has a 10-32 UNF threaded hole for use with a ground isolated screw-on adhesive or magnetic mounting base.

As an option, the accelerometers can be supplied with TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheets) IEEE1451.4 capability.
