The 8290A25M5 high temperature, triaxial accelerometer is housed in a cube-shaped package with a notched corner to aid in orientation during installation in blind areas. Laser-etched markings on all sides clearly identify the three axes. A ceramic shear sensing element produces a charge output that can be easily converted into a useable analog voltage signal via a charge amplifier. 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. It is recommended that low noise transducer cables be used between the sensor and charge amplifier, such as Kistler 1635 series.
Internal of this hermetically sealed accelerometer, is a shear mode, ceramic sensing element, providing a significant charge output. Type 5050B... In-Line Charge Amplifier is recommended for use with the 8290A25M5. The 5050B... 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.
