8044

Type 8044 are shock charge mode accelerometers utilizing a quartz compression element designed for both low and high temperature environments.
Main features / advantages
  • High impedance charge mode
  • Wide measuring range
  • Stable quartz element
  • Lightweight, miniature package
The Type 8044 accelerometers measure mechanical shocks up to 30000 g. A stable quartz element design with a 90 kHz resonant frequency ensures accurate measurements and allows the unit to undergo high and repeated shock impacts with virtually no zero shift. Contained within the sealed housing is a piezoelectric assembly consisting of a seismic mass preloaded to a quartz element stack. Due to the amount of pre-load on the quartz stack, the accelerometer can withstand more acceleration in one direction than in the other. Therefore it should not be exposed to accelerations greater than specified in its negative direction (force directed through the connector to the base).
