The Dytran model 3200B6M is an IEPE accelerometer which is very rugged. It comes with a natural frequency which is greater than 90 kHz. It may be used to measure severe shocks. It can also be used for measuring other extreme short duration events. In order to measure shock levels going above the range of 2500 g’s, an accelerometer needs to have high natural frequency. It also needs to be strong and of a compact size.
The Dytran model 3200B6M comes with 2500g range. The device incorporates a quartz crystal sensing element. The element operates in compression mode and is encased in stainless steel. Its total weight is 6 grams. The device is electrically base isolated. It also provides a broad frequency response and comes with a 10-32 axial connector.
