The XA1100 series accelerometer is specifically designed for high level shock measurement, up to 100 000g. This piezoresistive accelerometer takes advantage of the new silicon strain gauge technology and manufacturing techniques. Strain gauges are arranged in an active ½ Wheatstone bridge and completed by an external module, placed in the cable.
This shock accelerometer has a nonlinearity of ±0.5% F.S. nominal. The operating temperature range is from -40°C to 125°C. Its full scale output is 100mV nominal and 60mV minimum. It is made of Stainless steel, small in size and its weight without cable is less than 3grams.
The XA1100 features a high resonance frequency and zero damping, ideal for the measurement of fast rise-time accelerations and short or long duration shocks. A bidirectional shock accelerometer model, offering the same footprint and specifications is also available.
The XA1100 Series shock measurement accelerometer is manufactured by FGP and distributed in Australia and New Zealand by Bestech Australia .
