Vibration standard for 10-32 mounted accelerometers, measuring range 1000 g / 8002K
Type 8002K is a high precision accelerometer for shock and vibration measurements in laboratory applications.
- High impedance, charge mode
- Quartz stability and repeatability
- Wide operating temperature range
- For 10-32 mounted sensors
Contained within the Type 8002K housing is a piezoelectric assembly consisting of a seismic mass preloaded to a quartz element stack. The force acting on the quartz measuring element is proportional to the acceleration in accordance with Newton’s Law: F=ma. This element, in turn, gives an electrical charge signal proportional to the force, and therefore, to the acceleration. The charge signal is conducted through a low noise coaxial cable, such as the 1631 series, then converted and amplified to a proportional output voltage in a charge amplifier.
