200 g capability added to popular 7290 series accelerometers

IRVINE, Calif., USA – August 15, 2018 – Meggitt Sensing Systems, a division of Meggitt PLC, has added a 200g range to the popular model 7290G accelerometer.  This variable capacitance sensor features broad usable bandwidth and is excellent for low frequency testing applications such as aircraft flight and automobile road tests.

Precision temperature compensation provides for less than 1% thermal zero shift from -40 to +100 degrees C while the use of gas damping ensures stability and repeatability.  The rugged internal MEMS element allows the 7290G to quickly recover from any shock and provide accurate low g measurements.

Key features include:

- new 200 g range

- Frequency response +/-5% DC to 2,000 Hz

- Precision temperature compensation

- 10,000g shock survivability

- M5 option for watertight performance

Each 7290G is shipped with a NIST traceable calibration certificate, mounting cap screws and washers plus a hex key wrench for easy installation.  Optional accessories include triaxial mounting blocks (7990) and the Model 136, DC differential voltage amplifier.
