Kistler Model 8704B5000 K-Shear® Accelerometer

Kistler, Model, 8704B5000, K-Shear, Accelerometer The 8704B5000 accelerometer accurately measures mechanical shock up to 5,000 g. The unique K-SHEAR sensing system is insensitive to base strain, transverse accelerationand thermal transients. Quartz sensing crystals ensure the long-term stability not achievable with other sensing materials. The sensor is constructed in a hermetically sealed, welded, titanium case.

The 10-32 thread top connector is specially designed to provide years of reliable opeartion under conditions where repeated shock and vibration is encountered. The base of the accelerometer contains 10-32 threaded hole for stud mounting the unit to the test structure. The built-in Piezotron® electronic impedance converter, provides a low impedance voltage output signal allowing the use of inexpensive coaxial cable. The shock accelerometer can be powered by a Kistler 5100 series coupler/signal conditioner or by any commercially available voltage mode piezoelectric sensor power supply.
