4-20mA loop power accelerometers for condition monitoring

Paul Boughton

Measurement Specialties now offers the 801X series of rugged, internally-shielded, 4-20mA loop power accelerometers.

Designed to be connected to 4-20mA readout devices or directly into a PLC/DCS control system, the new sensors offer a dynamic range of ±5g to ±50g in either an RMS or Peak output for use in a variety of industrial environments.

The Model 8011 and Model 8012 are hermetically sealed and operate in temperatures from -40°C to 85°C, making them suitable for use in a number of general purpose industrial applications such as monitoring of motors, pumps, compressors or any type of rotating machinery. The Model 8011 comes with a top exit 2-pin MIL-C-5015 connector and the Model 8012 features an integral cable for installation flexibility. 

Constructed for reliable performance, the 801X series includes internal shielding and reverse wiring protection. The units also incorporate annular shear mode crystals for stable long term operation.

The new accelerometers offer a <5% transverse sensitivity and a frequency response from 10 Hz to 5,000Hz (600cpm to 30,000cpm).  Each unit can withstand shock up to 5,000g.
