Meggitt Intros New Line of Accelerometers
New line of Endevco Isotron general purpose accelerometers.
Irvine, CA — Meggitt Sensing Systems, a Meggitt group division, has introduced a significant extension of its family of Endevco brand Isotron accelerometers. This new line of general purpose IEPE accelerometers is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of test applications.

Key features of the new Endevco general purpose line of accelerometers include multiple sensitivity options; wideband frequency response; hermetically sealed; signal ground isolation from case; low noise floor; TEDS capable (IEEE P1451.4); CE marked Applications include general laboratory vibration testing, automotive testing (NVH, component reliability), universities, aerospace component reliability, vibration testing/monitoring of large equipment (industrial/manufacturing equipment), energy, rotating equipment, turbines (gas, wind, steam), defense, consumer electronics, household products and shaker table vibration feedback. The new Endevco models 41A, 42A and 43A are general purpose, single-axis accelerometers that provide sensitivities of 10, 25, 100, 500 and 1000 mV/g for the 41A and 42A, and 100, 500 and 1000 mV/g for the 43A. Amplitude response of ±5 percent is 1 to 10,000Hz. These stud-mounted accelerometers have a 10-32 threaded hole, and the customer may specify a 10-32 stud, 10-32 to -28 stud, 10-32 to M6 stud or 10-32 to M5 stud. Model 41A mounting bottom is a hex with 10-32 top connector. Model 42A mounting bottom is hex with 10-32 side connector.

Model 43A has an unusual cube shape which allows mounting in two different orientations, with the sensitive axis parallel to the connector and 10-32 connector. Optional accessories include cables, an adhesive mounting adapter and signal conditioners.

The new model 45A is a general purpose, high-sensitivity, triaxial accelerometer in a 20mm cube shape with 500mV/g (10g range) and 1000mV/g (5g range) options. Amplitude response of ±5 percent is 1 to 6.000Hz for y- and z-axes, 1 to 3,000Hz for x-axis. They are also stud-mounted with a 10-32 threaded hole and customer specification of a 10-32 stud, 10-32 to -28 stud, 10-32 to M6 stud or 10-32 to M5 stud. Optional accessories include cables, an adhesive mounting adapter, isolated mounting adapters and signal conditioners.

In addition to existing cables, the new Endevco model C general-purpose cable assemblies allow for user selectable cable configurations. They are specifically designed for use with single-axis and triaxial accelerometers, as well as other transducers. Users can specify the sensor side connector, cable type, instrumentation side connector and overall cable assembly length in inches.
