Developed for demanding applications requiring the
measurement of high amplitude, short duration transient events such as
pyrotechnic shock or high energy impacts, the A/161 IEPE accelerometer has a
range of ±10,000g and a sensitivity of 0.5mV/g (±10%).
The design of standard accelerometers has limitations when
used for shock applications, these can either be due to the short duration of
the transient event or due to the high level of the shock amplitude, either of
these elements can cause issues for standard vibration sensors and the hybrid
electronics used in these IEPE accelerometers. To overcome these issues the
A/161 has in built filters; both electrical and mechanical which ensure the
response is linear across a wide frequency band (1Hz to 15kHz) and up to a peak
amplitude measurement of 10,000g.
The A/161 is also designed to withstand over testing, though
measuring up to 10,000g the accelerometer has a physical built in protection up
to 30,000g, this is necessary due to the highly variable and sometimes
unpredictable nature of pyrotechnic events.
Other applications requiring high transient acceleration
measurements can include:
Pile Driver Monitoring
Simulated Pyroshock Event
Recoil and Penetration
Impact Press Monitoring
All DJB Accelerometers are calibrated on site prior to despatch, and are accompanied by a calibration chart with temperature and frequency responses listed.
Periodic calibration can be carried out with our VC-01 Handheld Calibrator whilst we also offer a full calibration service including cross axis checks to aid accuracy of data.
We are able to provide this service for all makes of accelerometer with a full report given for each device. Please contact us with an enquiry
