Piezoelectric accelerometers are based on PZT ceramic and feature IEPE (integrated electronics piezo electric) circuitry for converting of the charge to an analog output voltage signal.
The uniaxial ASC P401A15 operates at a constant current from 2 to 20 mA, has an operating temperature range from -55 °C to +150 °C and is available with an integrated TEDS (tranducer electronic data sheet). If required, the calibration data and sensor parameters can be written to the TEDS.
The accelerometers feature a robust stainless steel housing with protection class IP68 and a detachable cable with configurable length and connectors.
Test and measurement applications such as modal and structural analyses in the automotive and aviation sectors require lightweight high-frequency accelerometers that minimize the mass load on the test structures.
