Kistler Model 8710A Continuous Duty K-Shear® Accelerometer

Kistler, Model, 8710A, Continuous Duty, K-Shear, Accelerometer The 8710A50 family of low impedance, voltage mode accelerometers are designed for continuous operation in a wide variation of temperature environments. The standard M1 version spans an operating temperature range of -54 to 120C while the M5 high temperature version and the M8 low temperature version operate over a range of -54 to 165C and -195 to 120C respectively.

Both the 8710A50M5 and 8710M50M8 are light weight titanium units compared to the standard stainless steel 8710A50M1; one third less weight. The rugged design of these units make them ideally suited for many industrial applications where the precision of a laboratory sensor is required. 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. Constructed in a heavy duty, hermetically sealed case, these sensors can withstand a multitude of environmental conditions. A ground isolated base eliminates ground loops between the sensor and coupler.
