The accelerometer Type 8704B5000 accurately measures mechanical shock or vibration up to 5 000 g. The unique K-Shear sensing system is insensitive to base strain, transverse acceleration and thermal transients. Quartz shear cut, sensing crystals ensure long-term stability not achievable with other sensing materials.
The sensor is constructed in a hermetically sealed, welded, titanium case. The 10-32 thread top connector features a robust design to provide years of reliable operation under conditions where repeated shock and vibration is encountered.
The built-in Piezotron electronic impedance converter, provides a high signal level at a low impedance output allowing the use of inexpensive coaxial cable. The accelerometer can be powered by a Kistler 5100 series coupler/signal conditioner or by any industry standard IEPE (Integrated Electronic PiezoElectric) sensor power source.
