Kistler Model 8720A500 K-Shear® Accelerometer

Kistler, Model, 8720A500, K-Shear, Accelerometer The light weight, low profile 8720A500 uses the K-shear quartz sensing element. Operation in the shear mode reduces sensitivity to thermal transients, base strain and transverse motion. Long-term stability and accuracy is achieved by use of a quartz crystal sensing element. The internal circuit Piezotron® built-in impedance converter provides a low impedance output which eliminates the need for expensive low noise cable and chrage amplifier.

The accelerometer case is constructed of titanium and is hermetically sealed to insure years of reliable operation. The ground isolated base is designed for adhesive mounting and exceptional flatness insures maximum high frequency sensitivity.
