PCB Piezotronics introduced its Model 3711 high-sensitivity, MEMS DC (steady state) response accelerometer for automotive and off-highway testing. It is gas damped and provides micro g resolution and 10,000g shock survivability. Several full-scale acceleration ranges are available from 3g to 200g with a frequency response from DC to 1,500 Hz (±5 percent). The sensor’s footprint is 0.85¨ x 0.85¨ x 0.45¨ in a welded titanium case design, with a choice of either hermetic connector or integral cable versions. The accelerometer is suited for applications such as brake deceleration compliance certification; durability testing of vehicle radiators and air coolers; roll stiffness/static rollover threshold tests; vehicle/component test chamber instrumentation; and NVH and multi-axis motion test platforms.
