Kistler Instrument offers the Type 8688A series high-sensitivity IEPE triaxial accelerometers with optional transducer electronic data sheet designed to simultaneously measure vibration in three orthogonal axes. Available in various ranges and sensitivities, the IEPE triaxial range incorporates Kistler PiezoBeam technology with an integral ceramic cantilevered beam enclosed in a welded titanium housing with a mass of less than 6.7 g (0.25 oz). Sensing elements provide amplitude and phase response over a broad frequency range and are temperature-compensated. An integral low-noise charge amplifier converts the signal to a proportional high-level voltage. Units are ground-isolated when mounted with a clip or adhesive adapter and can be installed in space-confined areas. The series is suitable for multichannel modal and structural analyses of small components or subsystems and for general-purpose vibration-sensing applications, particularly mass loading.
