All units offer thermal stability and reliability over an operating temperature range of -65F to +250F (-55C to +125C), with 6,000g pk shock survivability. The Type 8315 single axis version features a 1-inch (25.4mm) footprint and is powered by a single wide range supply between +6 and +50VDC. Type 8315 models are offered with three different housing (AC, TA, TB) options, which determine available output signal formats. The AC option features a lightweight, hard anodized aluminum housing with environmental sealing, integral ground isolation, epoxy seal, and integral PVC cable, with a maximum operating temperature of +185F (+85C). Available AC option output signal formats are bipolar at 0±4V; single ended 2.5V±2V; or differential 0±8V. Series TA and TB options feature lightweight, welded titanium housings with choice of 4-pin, ¼-28 connector or integral Teflon jacketed cable, for a fully hermetic design with integral ground isolation. The TA and TB options are offered with the same output signal formats as the AC option, but also include a temperature output, should external temperature compensation be desired. TA and TB options have an operating temperature range of -65F to +250F (-55C to +125C). The Type 8395A triaxial version is designed to simultaneously measure acceleration and low-frequency vibration in three mutually perpendicular axes (x, y and z) with a compact design that occupies a 0.85-inch (21.6mm) cube footprint. The output format of the Type 8395A series is bipolar at 0±4V and provides a high-sensitivity, low-noise signal, compatible with a variety of data acquisition or readout devices. Sensing elements and integral electronics are housed within a lightweight, welded titanium housing with a specially designed miniature circular 9-pin connector, for a fully hermetic design. It is powered by a single wide range supply between +6 and +50VDC. In the event that external temperature compensation is desired for the application, a temperature output is provided, in addition to output signals. Ground isolation is obtained by mounting the sensor using offground accessories or by adhesively mounting to the test object using the side of the sensor with the integral hard anodized plate. Kistler MEMS Two-Axis Digital Accelerometer MEMSIC Inc.'s MXC6226XC MEMS two-axis digital accelerometer is a small, fully-integrated MEMS accelerometer. Based on MEMSIC's patented MEMS thermal technology, it is manufactured using a standard 0.18um CMOS process and advanced wafer- level packaging (WLP). The MXC6226XC accelerometer provides performance and functionality to designers who have previously not been able to consider motion sensing for their products. MEMSIC's MXC6226XC enables designers to significantly enhance the value of their product. It also serves as a high value-added replacement to designs employing mechanical switches, which are much less reliable and less capable.
