The Type 8762A... accelerometer is a unique annular, shear sensor element that features extremely low thermal transient response, a high immunity to base strain, and transverse acceleration. An advanced hybrid charge amplifier design provides out standing phase response, as well as a wide operating frequency range. The lightweight, aluminum housing is epoxy sealed and hard anodized coated to provide ground isolation.
Each of the three sensing elements is internally connected to a microelectronic circuit that converts the charge from the ceramic piezoelectric elements into a useable high level voltage signal at a low impedance output. The Type 8762A... accelerometer series will operate directly from the internal power source found in most FFT analyzers; from several Kistler Piezotron ® power supply couplers or any industry standard IEPE (Integrated Electronic Piezo-Electric) compatible power source.
