PCB Piezotronics, Inc. announces the release of a triaxial charge accelerometer designed for use in environments with ambient temperatures up to 900 °F/482 °C. Model EX356A73 is certified as intrinsically safe through the ATEX, CSA and IECEx programs. It is ideal for use in aviation/power generation turbine research & development, nuclear power plant commissioning and vehicle exhaust NVH applications.
The product features a wide frequency range (up to 4,000 Hz with a ±5% tolerance) packaged in a nickel alloy, hermetically sealed housing with three 10-32 coaxial jacks. The model also utilizes a UHT-12 sensing element with the following features:
No pyroelectric output provides accurate low-frequency measurements.
Reduced thermal noise spikes eliminate false alarms during monitoring.
More consistent sensitivity over a wide temperature change provides greater accuracy.
Shear mode crystals prevent base strain and transverse measurement errors.
