Ultra high output, multiple shear plate vibration transducer. Shear plate construction provides near total isolation from mechanical inputs other than acceleration, thus safe guarding measurement integrity in applications where vibration is accompanied by high dynamic strain levels. Generalizing, these conditions are prevalent where modal frequencies are low, and are thus associated with vibration surveys of large structures. Transducers exhibiting significant strain response may operate more akin to strain gauges at low frequency excitation and their use is to be discouraged. A number of parallel shear plates equivalent in total thickness to single plate of charge sensitivity Q and capacitance C, generates charge nQ. Clearly taken to the limit, noise degradation overrides signal increase, hence these products are largely a compromise between signal/noise and mass/size.
This Accelerometer is also available as an IEPE version -A1600.
