Measurement Specialties has announced the release of the Model 4807A Accelerometer. The DC response high resolution accelerometer featuring micro-g resolution is the market’s first device with a remote auto-zero function.
4807A Low Noise Accelerometer
The ultra low noise Model 4807A has been designed for signal-conditioned, amplified output with a range of 98dB from ±2 g to ±200 g. The accelerometer integrates a gas-damped silicon MEMS sensor offering shock protection of 5,000 g and a high bandwidth of up to 1500 Hz. Also featuring integral mechanical overload stops, the Model 4807 A is ideal for low level vibration monitoring in variety of applications such as flight testing, transportation testing, structural monitoring and machine control.
Available in a hermetically sealed, stainless steel housing, the Model 4807A Accelerometer offers reliable operation in harsh environments. The ±2 V DC bias output offered by the device is compatible with most industry-standard instrumentation. The device offers an excitation voltage ranging between 8 V DC and 18 V DC with a Total Error Band of less than 2%. Designed to be operational in all weather conditions and temperature ranges between -40°C and +121°C, the IP67-rated accelerometer offers protection against liquid incursion and in high-humidity conditions. The easy-to-install Model 4807A is available with three-channel DC signal amplifier/condition, a triaxial mounting block and an optional detachable cable. Customers can access the remote auto-zero function by using the 341A cable assembly.
Packaged along with a NIST-traceable calibration certificate, the Model 4807A Accelerometer manufactured by Measurement Specialties is EAR99 export compliant.
Headquartered in Hampton, VA, Measurement Specialties manufactures several sensors and sensor-based systems for measuring temperature, position, torque, vibration, force, pressure, fluid properties, photo optics and mass air flow.
