Accelerometer Performs in High Temperatures

IMI Sensors announced the high temperature ICP accelerometer model HT602D01 for vibration measurements on paper machines and for other higher temperature applications. These ceramic shear ICP accelerometers include a two-pin MIL-C-501 side-exit connector in a low profile housing. Heat environments up to +325°F/+163°C can be tolerated. The sensing element of these accelerometers provides a sensitivity of (±10 percent) 100 mV/g (10.2 mV/(m/s²)) with a frequency range of (±3 dB) 30 cpm to 480000 cpm (0.5 Hz to 8000 Hz). This sensor can be used as drop-in replacement for existing accelerometers and offers a higher temperature range than many competing sensor types.
