Ceramic Shear, High Temperature, Charge Mode, Triaxial Accelerometer

Type 8248A3

The Type 8248A3 high temperature, triaxial accelerometer is housed in a rectangular-shaped package with a center through-hole for seamless orientation of the sensor. Laser-etched markings on all sides clearly identify the three axes. A ceramic shear sensing element produces a charge output that can be easily converted into a useable analog voltage signal via a charge amplifier. Kistler’s shear technology assures high immunity to base strain, thermal transients and transverse accelerations. Other outstanding features include high frequency response, lightweight and hermetic sealing. It is recommended that low noise transducer cables be used between the sensor and charge amplifier, such as the Kistler Type 1766AK03SP, or Type 1766AK04SP.
