Low profile accelerometer measures vibration in three axes

Jon Lawson

Designed for general purpose vibration measurement, the new MTN/1330 triaxial accelerometer from Monitran measures acceleration simultaneously in all three spatial axes.

The constant current device has three isolated AC outputs corresponding to the X, Y and Z axes, and a top-entry 4 pin M12 connector. Standard sensitivity is 100mV/g at 80Hz, and the acceleration range is ±80g.

The internal electronics use a new PCB design and are isolated to minimise noise, with increased bias voltage stability. The case is sealed to IP66 and is available in stainless steel, or aluminium for reduced weight.

Among the advantages of using triaxial sensors are reduced data collection times, a reduction in wiring and more consistent reliability in readings. Typical application sectors include aerospace, automotive and general research and development.
