Meggitt introduces accelerometer without resonance for automotive safety testing

IRVINE, Calif., USA – Oct.19, 2017 – Meggitt Sensing Systems, a Meggitt division and leader in sensing and monitoring systems for extreme environments, has launched a new MEMS based accelerometer featuring multi-mode damping.  Target applications include pedestrian safety, military vehicle testing or any test measuring a high frequency impact.

The new Endevco model 7264H-2K, which is small in size and mass, has no significant resonance out to 20,000Hz and unlike fluid-damped sensors, performs consistently over temperatures ranging from - 18°C to + 66°C (0°F to + 150°F).  Utilizing a breakthrough MEMS design, the 7264H-2K has a much wider bandwidth compared to conventional fluid-damped sensors.

Key features:

  • Frequency response flat from DC to 6,000Hz
  • Full scale range of 2000g
  • 10,000g shock capacity
  • 4g weight

The 7264H-2K has a two-active-arm, full-bridge circuit with fixed completion resistors to facilitate shunt calibration. The 7264H-2K comes standard with 2, 5 and 10 volt calibration data.

Demo units are available upon request.
