As turbines operate at elevated temperatures, this makes the operating temperature of the accelerometers a primary selection criteria.

The highest temperature unit offered by Endevco is the 6237M70 with an operating range to 1200˚F. Included with this accelerometer is a mounting screw (EH471) and hardline cable.

There are 3 accelerometers with slightly lower  maximum operating temperatures (900˚F) whose mounting configurations differ. The 6233C, features ARINC 3 point mounting, the 2276, stud mounting and the 2248M1 stud or flange mounting the 2248.

All these PE accelerometers require no external power supply. If needed, an optional charge amplifier (2721B) or in-line charge converter (2771C) is available.
