Meggitt Endevco accelerometer offers light-weight general purpose vibration testing

Meggitt Sensing Systems has introduced the Endevco model 2226C, a compact and lightweight adhesive mounted piezoelectric accelerometer, designed for the general purpose vibration testing of smaller structures and objects. With a sensitivity of 2.8 pC/g, the Endevco model 2226C features a top mounted 10-32 receptacle. Weighing 2.8 gm, , the units are designed to reliably operate over a temperature range of -55˚C to +177˚C (-67˚F to +350˚F).

As a self-generating device, the model 2226C requires no external power source for operation. Although signal return is connected to the case, a user may isolate signal ground from the mounting surface by installing the unit with non-conductive adhesive. A low-noise, flexible coaxial cable, the Endevco model 3060D-120, is supplied for error-free operation.
