Meggitt Sensing Systems wins 2014 Best of Sensors Expo Award

Irvine, California, USA – Meggitt Sensing Systems was presented with the 2014 Best of Sensors Expo Innovation Honorable Mention for the 7253D triaxial Isotron® accelerometer by Sensors Magazine.  Mat Dirjish, Executive Editor of the magazine presented the awards at the Sensors Expo & Conference on June 26 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

“We were thrilled to receive so many nominations for this year’s awards on applications and innovations in the world of sensors, and to recognize excellence among engineers,” said Dirjish. “The nominations demonstrated exceptional innovation in engineering, applications, and sensor technology, and we applaud all of the winners and all the hard work they put in.” A total of eleven awards were presented in four categories.

The Endevco® model 7253D is an Isotron (IEPE) triaxial accelerometer designed for applications requiring the measurement of shock and vibration simultaneously in three mutually perpendicular axes. It is small and lightweight with a broad frequency response. The thru-hole mounting design allows for 360˚ cable orientation. The unit is hermetically sealed to protect against environmental contamination. The signal ground is isolated from the mounting surface by a hard anodized insulator. The accelerometer is available in two sensitivities, 10 mV/g (7253D-10) and 100 mV/g (7253D-100).

The 7253D is ideally suited for applications where the orientation of the connector and sensitive axes are critical. Testing environments include flight testing, aircraft engine testing, industrial engine testing, missile testing, aircraft component testing, spacecraft component testing, and industrial machinery testing.
