Meggitt Sensing Systems Endevco model 7287 piezoresistive accelerometer weighs less than one gram. However, the accelerometer is not a light-weight when it comes to testing applications. The sensor targets the measurement of long duration transient shocks found in product and packaging drop testing, shipping container shock testing, jack hammer testing and high-g destructive testing.
The microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensing element has integral mechanical stops and adds minimal mass to the test structure. The accelerometer has a measurement range of 2,000 g, 200 mV full scale output and a high resonance frequency of more than 20,000 Hz.
