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.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
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.
