Variable-capacitance accelerometer

Variable-capacitance accelerometer

The Endevco Model 7298 triaxial, variable-capacitance accelerometer is for highly accurate measurement of low-frequency events. The units are available in six models, ranging from 2 to 100 gm, and feature a sensing element with gas damping and internal overrange stops, which allows the transducer to withstand high shock and acceleration loads. It also features a stainless-steel, hermetically sealed package with a water-resistant connector that, when combined with an optional Model 3907 cable assembly, allows for extended outdoor exposure.
Additional features include a broad excitation input range from 6 to 45 Vdc; operates across the full military temperature range of –55 to 125°C with integral digital temperature compensation; and easy installation with simple two-screw mounting. In addition, it offers +0.5% FSO typical nonlinearity and hysteresis for most ranges and +1% FSO maximum for both thermal sensitivity shift and thermal zero shift, enabling it to provide the highest level of total accuracy available.
