Miniature triaxial ICP accelerometer

  • 18-May-2017 05:26 EDT


PCB Piezotronics, Inc.’s (Depew, NY) family of miniature triaxial ICP accelerometers, Models 356A43, 356A44 and 356A45, are small (0.4 x 0.4 x 0.75 in/10.2 x 10.2 x 19.05 mm), lightweight (4.2 g/0.15 oz) and TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheets) IEEE 1451.4 enabled. The TEDS feature self identifies the accelerometer and describes type, operation and attributes, which, according to the company, makes it extremely easy for an operator to track. Data contained in the TEDS programming include manufacturer, model number, serial number, calibration date, sensitivity, frequency response and measurement ID—all in compliance with IEEE 1451.4 standard. Packaged in a hermetically sealed titanium cube, models are available with three sensitivities: 10 mV/g, 50 mV/g or 100 mV/g. The most common applications for this rugged family of miniature triaxial ICP accelerometers are modal and structural analysis, automotive NVH and package testing.
