HAMPTON, Va., Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Measurement Specialties (NASDAQ: MEAS), 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.
- Two dynamic ranges: +/- 40 g and +/- 160 g
- Stable piezo-ceramic shear design
- Operating temperature range of -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C
- Excitation voltage of 7 Vdc to 30 Vdc
- Non-linearity of +/- 2% (FSO)
- Shock limit of 2,000 g's
- Integral cable for plug and play
Pricing and delivery for the Model 8101 is dependent upon quantity ordered.
