The side connector Type 8703A... and top connector accelerometer Type 8705A... utilizes Kistler’s unique PiezoStar seismic element that provides both wide operating frequency and ultra low temperature coefficient of sensitivity of 0,004 %/°C.
The accelerometer family operates from –55 ... 165 °C and exhibits low thermal sensitivity low base strain and low transverse sensitivity minimizing measurement errors.
An internal Piezotron ® impedance converter circuit converts the charge developed in the PiezoStar seismic element during shock or vibration into a voltage output. In addition to the ultra-low thermal sensitivity, PiezoStar accelerometers provide excellent long-term stability and repeatability.
The accelerometer family is available in ground isolated versions (indicated with M1 suffix). All units are hermetically sealed and are constructed entirely of titanium or a combination of titanium and stainless steel.
