The new Dytran 3316M1 miniature high temperature accelerometer from Metromatics is capable of operating temperatures up to +482ºC. It utilises the latest in planar shear technology.

The 3316M1 is designed with a unique patented technology and employes an 'silver window' on the top cover of the accelerometer housing, which provides oxygen access to the crystal at high temperatures while maintaining the unit's hermetic sealing.

Key features of the miniature high temperature accelerometer includes:
  • lightweight cubic design, weighing only 5g and a height of 9.8mm
  • sensitivity between 1 and 2 pC/g and with 10,000 Hz upper frequency response
  • 10-32 tapped hole and 10-32 radical connector
  • high frequency response
  • hermetically sealed

Due to its miniature size, the 3316C series has ground connection to the housing. It is therefore recommended to use the model 6998 or 6989 (single triaxial, respectively) isolated mounting blocks in order to isolate the sensor from the mounting surface.

Additional recommended accessories for the 3116C include the model 6946A and 6979A hardline cable assemblies and model 4752B in-line charge amplifier.

The Dytran 3316M1 miniature high temperature accelerometer is durable and has a broad operating temperature range, making this model ideal for automotive vibration studies, exhaust system analysis, engine vibration studies and Environmental Stress Screening (ESS).
