IEPE triaxial accelerometers, miniature, ceramic shear, 50 … 2000 g / 8763B

Triaxial miniature IEPE accelerators 8763B from Kistler offer longterm stability.


Family Type 8763B are triaxial accelerometers which measure vibration in three orthogonal axes with low mass.
Main features / advantages
  • 3 x 5 - 40 threaded holes for mounting ease
  • M4.5 and 1/4 – 28, 4-pin connector options
  • Voltage output (IEPE)
  • ±50, 100, 250, 500, 1000 and 2000 g measuring ranges
  • TEDS option
  • Waterproof IP68 integral cable option (up to 16 bar)
  • Conforming to CE

The family Type 8763B are IEPE (Integrated Electronics Piezo-Electric) triaxial accelerometers which allow vibration measurements in x, y, and z axes. These accelerometers feature Kistler shear element technology, assuring high immunity to base strain. The welded titanium construction provides a lightweight hermetic housing. An integral silicone cable option is available for waterproof vibration testing up to 16 bar. In addition to adhesive mounting, Type 8763B has 3 x 5 - 40 threaded holes for flexible mounting options, which also allow for calibration in each orthogonal axis.

Can the three 5-40 threaded holes also be utilized for calibration purposes?

Yes, the threaded holes also serve as a reliable fastening for the calibration of each orthogonal axis.

What is the maximal cable length of IEPE sensors?

Be aware that ground isolated and differential sensors are preferable for long cable length applications.

The maximum cable length can be calculated as follows: I = 2 * π * f * C * E (I = Current in Amperes, f = Frequency in Hz, C = Capacitance in Farads (typically 98 pF/m), E = Output in Volts, Peak)
