Piezoresistive shock accelerometers

  • 11-Apr-2012 05:42 EDT

Meggitt Sensing Systems’ Endevco model 7280 series of lightly damped, single-axis, high-g piezoresistive shock accelerometers is designed to support pyroshock, weapons testing, high-shock data recorders, missiles, munitions, and other demanding requirements. These rugged sensors offer superior survivability to 4x over-range, minimum shift after shock, higher impedance, and lower power consumption than legacy models. Offered in two ranges of 20,000 g and 60,000 g, the series incorporates the lightly damped MEMS sensing element, designed for lower power consumption. Input voltage can be customer-specified, with 10 V offered as standard. The model 7280A incorporates the sensing element within an industry-standard screw mount package, while the model 7280AM4 is offered within an industry-standard stud mount package.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
