PCB Piezotronics Miniature Accelerometer Designed for Shock and Vibration
April 15, 2006
The Vibration Division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc. announces release of the Model 352C23 miniature ICP accelerometer, designed for shock and vibration measurements in space-restricted locations and on small, lightweight structures.
The unit weighs 0.2 grams, and occupies only a 0.11" 0.23" footprint, for minimal mass loading of the test article. The device is ideally suited for vibration studies and package testing of circuit boards, disc drive mechanisms, cellular phones, PDAs, and other consumer electronics.
Other applications include NVH studies on automotive parts and modal analysis and structural testing of solar
panels and satellite components.
The sensor is structured with a shear mode, piezoceramic sensing element and produces a 5 mV/g output signal, with frequency response from 2 to 10k Hz and measurement range of 1000 gs.
Additional features include an anodized aluminum housing, electrical ground isolation, 10,000 g
shock limit, 3-56 coaxial electrical connector, and a 10 ft (3 m) replaceable low-noise cable.
