Kistler Model 8704B...M10 PiezoSMART® Accelerometer

Kistler, Model, 8704B, M10, PiezoSMART, Accelerometer The Kitsler 8704B...M10 accelerometer can operate both as a standard low impedance, voltage mode sensor with a conventional analog output signal or in a digital "PiezoSMART Sensor Mode" capable of providing pertinent information stored with in its memory module. Since the design of the accelerometer confirms to a universal standard (IEEE 1451.4), any commercially manufactured TEDS Signal Conditioner, along with a host computer, will address and retrieve the stored information.

The PiezoSMART 8704 is ideally suited for multi-channel industrial vibration monitoring, where the performance of a laboratory type sensor coupled with the convenience of having sensor identification and specification readily available becomes an important test benefit. Kistler's field proven K-Shear design ensures extremely low sensitivity to thermal transients, base strain and transverse acceleration. Quartz sensing elements afford the ultimate in long-term stability for years of repeatable and accurate measurements.

A low impedance, voltage output is provided by the embedded Kistler Piezotron® electronic impedance converter. This output allows for the use of inexpensive coaxial cable, while providing high noise immunity and insensitivity to cable motion. The low impedance output is also desirable for operation in a humid environment. The 8704M10 accelerometer series features a light weight titanium case, hermetically sealed to withstand varied environmental conditions.
