A manufacturer of sensors and systems designed to calculate the ranges of force, pressure, torque, position, vibration, humidity, temperature, photo optics and other physical characteristics using advanced technologies such as MEMS, strain gauges and integrated circuits, Measurement Specialties has announced that manufacture of the Model 4332 triaxial accelerometer has commenced.
The vibration sensor designed for the close screening of public infrastructures is available in a strong aluminum housing. The Model 4332 triaxial accelerometer features an amplified output and integrates damped MEMS-based sensing technology.
The Vice President, Sales and Marketing of Measurement Specialties, Glen MacGibbon stated that the Model 4332 accelerometer has been design to aid engineers in closely monitoring critical infrastructures such as passageways, underground tunnels, bridges and highway overpasses.
It is a temperature compensated accelerometer unit that offers a dynamic range of ±2g and ±5g with a 50Hz low-pass filter. It is operational between -40°C and +85°C and is IP68-compliant, which renders it operational when submerged in water up to 10 m deep. It offers a full scale DC-coupled output of 0.5 V to 4.5 V and is operational in 5-30VDC.
The Model 4332 is a screw-mounted design but it is also possible to adhesively mount the device for brief periods of time. The calibration certificate supplied in each unit is NIST traceable and the packaging also features an integral cable assembly.
The after sale calibration is provided and supported by the company’s Vibration Design Center in California and its manufacturing facilities in France and China.
