Meggitt Sensing Systems offers the Endevco model 2226C, a compact adhesive-mounted piezoelectric accelerometer designed for the general-purpose vibration testing of smaller structures and objects. With a sensitivity of 2.8 pC/g, the 2226C features a compact top-mounted receptacle for improved installation within space-constrained environments. A weight of 2.8 g (0.01 oz) minimizes mass loading, and units are designed to operate over a temperature range of -55 to +177˚C (-67 to +350˚F). A self-generating device, model 2226C requires no external power source for operation and offers improved output sensitivity stability over time. Users may isolate signal ground from the mounting surface by installing the unit with nonconductive adhesive. A low-noise, flexible coaxial cable is supplied for error-free operation.
