Magnets & Mounting Blocks

Accelerometer Selection - Points to consider

Mounting Guide

Accelerometer mounting is a critical part of the testing process and one that is most commonly overlooked having little attention paid to it. To maximise data accuracy the accelerometer must be closely coupled with thes test item and a poor mounting method can introduce significant errors into the data, particularly as frequency levels rise. Please see our Mounting Guide for more information on the types of mounting available or feel free to contact us should you need further advise. These mounting blocks can be used with a range of accelerometers for vibration and shock testing, including high shock tests up to 25,000g
