Cryo and high-temperature PiezoStar accelerometers, 50 … 250 g / 8703A

Cryo and high-temperature PiezoStar accelerometers, 50 … 250 g

8703A

Family Type 8703A are small, lightweight accelerometers for shock and vibration measurements for rapidly changing temperature conditions.
 
  • Unique PiezoStar sensing element
  • Operating temperature range: –55 ... 165°C
  • Ultra-low temperature sensitivity
  • Frequency range: 0.5 Hz ... 10 kHz (±5%)
  • Low base strain sensitivity
  • Conforming to CE
The side connector Type 8703A features Kistler’s unique PiezoStar seismic element that provides both wide operating frequency and ultra-low temperature coefficient of sensitivity of 0.004%/°C. The accelerometer family operates from –55 … 165°C and exhibits low thermal sensitivity low base strain and low transverse sensitivity minimizing measurement errors. An internal Piezotron impedance converter circuit converts the charge developed in the PiezoStar seismic element during shock or vibration into a voltage output. In addition to the ultra-low thermal sensitivity, PiezoStar accelerometers provide excellent long-term stability and repeatability.
