Dytran Instruments, Inc. announces the release of a new range of high
temperature, isolated, charge mode accelerometers featuring an ultra-miniature
size. Dytran is a leading manufacturer of piezoelectric and DC MEMS
accelerometers, force and pressure transducers and associated electronics.
Measuring just 8.89mm L X 8.89mm âÃ² X 6.096mm H, Dytran’s new 3310A accelerometer
can be easily mounted in areas with a very small footprint. The
3310A’s high output, low capacitance, thermally stable single crystal
material improves temperature stability, allowing for operation in high
temperature (up to +260¡C) environments. This model’s low thermal coefficient
of sensitivity means the sensor sensitivity doesn’t change much with changing
Key features of Dytran’s new 3310A miniature accelerometers include
latest planar shear technology generating clean low noise signals; permanently
bonded in an anodised aluminium isolation cup that electrically isolates the
case from the mounting surface, preventing ground loop interference; low mass
and high crystal stiffness allowing the sensor to measure high frequency
vibrations with very little error; titanium case packaging; lightweight at only
1.8 grams; sensitivity of 1.0 – 1.3 pC/g, and installed using adhesives or
mounting wax; and specially designed Dytran 3-56 coaxial connector, which mates
with a supplied replacement cable, terminating to a 10-32 jack.
Some test applications for model 3310A include: Environmental Stress
Screening (ESS), mechanical shock testing, shock and vibration testing of small
lightweight specimens (such as printed circuit boards), product response
testing, and general purpose high temperature vibration measurements where
space is at a premium, among many more.
