MONITRAN, represented in Australia by Testequip , has released two new accelerometers or vibration sensors designed for the automotive and autosport engineering markets.
The 1830 and 1135 sensors offer high frequency response up to 13kHz and are compact and low in mass. They are constructed in welded stainless steel housings with overbraided cable and sealed to IP67 for protection in tough operating conditions.
The series 1830 vibration sensor uses a single bolt (M6 or M8) fixing and weighs just 47g, making it ideal for use on vehicles that are under investigation for vibration measurement and analysis. It has a frequency response of 0.8Hz to 12kHz with a measuring range of 10g or 50g and will operate over a temperature range of -10°C to 140°C.
The series 1135 is much smaller, weighing just 30g and is ideal where space is limited. It has a quick-fit type fixing arrangement which offers a mounting choice of a M6 threaded or an adhesive stud. It has a slightly wider frequency response range at 0.5Hz to 13 kHz and a measuring range of 50 or 100g, operating over a temperature range of -25°C to 140°C.
