8730B

Family Type 8730B are lightweight accelerometers designed for higher g ranges and cryo capabilities.
Main features / advantages
  • Low impedance voltage mode
  • Quartz shear sensing element
  • Measuring ranges: ±500 g, ±1000 g, and ±2000 g
  • Minimal thermal transient response
  • Ground isolated option available
  • Cryogenic option available

The light weight Type 8730B accelerometer series uses Kistler’s uniquely designed K-Shear quartz sensing element. Operating in the shear mode with precisely cut quartz plates, allows the accelerometers to exhibit ultra low sensitivity to thermal transients, base strain and transverse motion. Housed in a hermetically sealed titanium case, the quartz sensing elements afford excellent long-term stability that ensures repeatable and accurate measurements. The standard Type 8730B and the low temperature 8730BxC accelerometer weighs only 1.9 grams while the 8730BxI version which is slightly larger and "off-ground" weighs 2.5 grams.
