The Type 8715B side connector accelerometers feature Kistler's unique PiezoStar seismic element. Operating at –54...165°C (–65...329°F), this unique element provides a wide operating frequency, base strain and low transverse sensitivity to minimize 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. PiezoStar accelerometers provide excellent long term stability and repeatability. These accelerometers are ground isolated and have hermetically sealed titanium housings.
