8840

Type 8840 are unique quartz shear accelerometers capable of measuring lateral rotational acceleration.
Main features / advantages
  • Shear quartz piezoelectric principle
  • Measures lateral oscillations
  • Hermetic construction
  • Lightweight and convenient through hole mount
Type 8840 is a novel complement of shear mode sensors that is designed to respond to a distinctly different form of induced oscillations.The element structure of Type 8840 accelerometer is such that the unit will accurately measure the acceleration magnitude of oscillations laterally induced to its mounting base. The shear technology from Kistler assures high immunity to base strain, thermal transients and transverse accelerations. Notable features include wide frequency response, lightweight titanium construction, hermetic and ground isolated design.
