Kistler Models 8630C & 8636C PiezoBEAM® Accelerometers

Kistler, Model, 8630C, 8636C, PiezoBEAM, Accelerometers The Kistler 8630C PiezoBEAM® accelerometers meet requirements for modal analysis. The light weight, five gram design reduces mass loading on light structures, especially when multiple units are used. This sensor feature high sensitivity and high thermal rejection. Type 8630 accelerometers are housed in a hard anodized, environmentally sealed housing. The finish provides ground isolation as well as environmental protection. Type 8636C is designed for stud mounting. The patented PiezoBEAM® design features outstanding phase reponse as well as a wide frequency range. The sensor is available in three ranges with sensitivities as high as 1000mV/g.

The built-in charge amplifier provides a low impedance voltage output, allowing use of low cost, standard cabling. These sensors will operate directly from the internal power source, available in most FFT analyzers or from Kistler's large selection of power supply couplers. The sensor can be connected with a common coaxial cable such as Type 1761B.
