Kistler Model 8324A K-Beam® Capacitive Accelerometers

Kistler, Model, 8324A, K-Beam, Capacitive Accelerometers The Kistler 8324A K-Beam accelerometer utilizes a variable capacitance sensing element. This high performance accelerometer is ideally suited for applications requiring the measurement of high level acceleration in adverse environments. The 8324 has excellent frequency response exceeding 700 Hz (-3dB) and can survive shock exposure over 5,000g peak. Both types are insensitive to thermal transients and transverse acceleration. The sensing element and conditioning electronics are integrated into a single lightweight, hermetically sealed titanium housing. Ground isolation is provided by an insulator plate permanently bonded to the housing.

The standard 8324A accelerometer operates from a single 15 to 28V supply while the 8324A...M11 designed for automotive applications operates on 11 to 28VDC. Both types provide bipolar output with a nominal offset voltage of 0 volts. The 4-pin receptacle installed on the basic model provides the convenience of a detachable extension cable. The 8324A...M11 variation contains an integral 6 meter, four conductor cable terminated in pigtails. Both versions can be attached to the test structure by special screw assemblies that preserve the integrity of the ground isolation.
