Endevco accelerometers are the industry standard for high g shock measurement.  These accelerometers are small, lightweight, easy to install and can take shocks up to 200,000g’s.  Our piezoresistive shock accelerometers are essential in measuring accurate Shock Response Spectrum.  As a result, they are frequently specified for applications involving weapons testing, explosions and missile penetration studies.
