August 23, 2021, Depew, NY – Endevco today announced the release of Model 2262B, a rugged, gas damped piezoresistive accelerometer for shock environments. This new transducer uses a unique and advanced multi-mode damped silicon piezoresistive MEMS sensing element for exceptional bandwidth with no significant resonance response up to 40 kHz.

Model 2262B is available in 1000, 2000 and 6000 g full scale ranges. The hermetically sealed stainless steel package includes an integral 4-pin connector that mates with Endevco’s Model 3915 detachable low noise, shielded cable assembly, sold separately. Model 2262B replaces the now obsolete Model 2262A fluid damped accelerometer.

“The 2262B is desirable for shock applications where there is a need to suppress high frequency inputs for accurate motion measurements,” said Jennifer MacDonell, MEMS product line manager at Endevco. ”With a frequency response extending down to DC, the new Model 2262B accelerometer is ideal for measuring long duration transient shocks in applications such as structural response, shipboard shock (per MIL-DTL-901E), and large vehicle testing.”
