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.

Technical Specifications

  • 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.
