Measurement Specialties, an expert in sensor design and manufacturing, offers the Model 8101, a compact, low-cost accelerometer designed for general purpose vibration measurement.
The new plug-and-play piezoelectric linear accelerometer is available in two dynamic ranges, +/- 40 g and +/- 160 g, for use in a wide number of applications, as well as in two measurement directions, either an X- or Z-axis configuration. The sensor is ideal for asset, impact and machine health monitoring as well as data loggers, system wake-up switches and product R&D.
The Model 8101 features stable piezo-ceramic crystals in shear mode with low base strain sensitivity and a flat frequency response across a 6,000 Hz bandwidth. The accelerometer is fully potted for an environmentally sealed IP65 construction that enables the unit to be used in a variety of test & measurement applications.
