Accelerometer suitable for 3-input oscilloscopes
Saelig Company has introduced the PP877 Three-Axis Accelerometer, which includes a signal conditioning interface suitable for any 3-input oscilloscope, but is especially suited to Pico Technology's four-channel PC oscilloscope adapters. Designed for vibration and acceleration experiments, this three-axis accelerometer and interface simply plugs into any PicoScope oscilloscope to provide a ± 5g measurement range for movement and vibration investigations from DC to 350 Hz frequency range.
The PP877 Accelerometer sensing head has mounting options of either a built-in powerful magnet or a mounting hole for screw-attachment. Powered by an internal 3V lithium battery, the PP877's signal conditioner output is from 0 to 2VDC, with 0g at 0.85 to 1.15 V output (all axes) and output scaling of 99 to 122 mV/g. The sensor head has been designed for shock survivability to 10,000 g and an operating temperature range of -40degC to 85degC.
The free supplied PicoScope 6 software makes it easy to quickly see the output of each of the three axes' outputs when used with a suitable PC oscilloscope such as the PS4424.
The PP877 Three-Axis Accelerometer consists of a sensor head, a signal conditioner, three BNC cables, and a Quick Start guide. It is designed and made by Europe's premiere PC scope manufacturer, award-winning Pico Technology, and is available now from Pico's USA distributor Saelig Company, Inc. from around $400.
