The 8274A5, 8276A5 are high impedance, charge mode accelerometers designed for vibration measurements in single to multichannel applications. The unique connector design is rugged and maintains excellent integrity with repeated connections. The ceramic sensing element components have been carefully designed to provide the level of performance most often required in general purpose vibration measurements. Kistler's shear technology assures high immunity to base strain, thermal transients and transverse accelerations. Other outstanding features include high frequency response, lightweight and hermetic sealing.
Within this small, lightweight package is a robust, shear mode, ceramic sensing element, providing a significant charge output. The measurement range is adjustable when used with a laboratory style charge amplifier. The Type 5050 In-Line Charge Converter is a lower cost alternative to the laboratory amplifier allowing the measurement system to take on the appearance of the traditional voltage mode accelerometer and power supply/coupler.
