Jewell Instruments, LLC has announced new force-balanced quartz flexure accelerometer sensors to their Inertial Sensors and Controls product line.
A world leader in the manufacture and distribution of sensors, controls, meters, avionics, industrial test equipment, and geophysical and geotechnical products, Jewell Instruments has introduced their new QFA-180 and QFA-125 high and mid-temperature force-balanced quartz flexure accelerometer sensors to their Inertial Sensors and Controls product group.
The QFA-180 and QFA-125 are the first of several quartz accelerometers that Jewell will be introducing to their Inertial Sensors and Controls product line over the next several months.
The QFA-180 quartz flexure accelerometer series features state-of-the-art quartz flexure technology that provides high accuracy, repeatability and stability in some of the harshest of environments. These accelerometers were designed to withstand high temperature environments up to 180°C and are an ideal fit for the Measure While Drilling (MWD) and Down-Hole Drilling applications within the Oil & Gas industry.
With two mounting flange options and a small compact design, this accelerometer is an ideal plug-in replacement for other quartz flexure accelerometers on the market today.
The QFA-125 quartz flexure accelerometer series is a mid-temperature range quartz technology that also provides high accuracy, repeatability and stability in harsh environments. Designed to withstand temperatures up to 125°C, these accelerometers are designed for applications in precision navigation, marine instrumentation, rail maintenance track geometry, wind tunnel testing, and industrial applications that require a high-precision grade sensor. The QFA-125 also features two mounting flanges, round or square, and has a built-in self-test system.
Brian Ward, Director of Business and Development for the Sensors and Controls product line explains that Jewell’s new quartz flexure accelerometers complement the other sensors within the Inertial Sensor product line and are in great demand from customers within the oil and gas and industrial markets.
