Flight Test Accelerometers, 3326A Series
Product Announcement from Dytran Instruments, Inc.
The Dytran 3326A series is a family of low noise piezoelectric accelerometers ideally suited for use in flight testing applications.
The distinguishing characteristic feature of the 3326A series is that the accelerometers are compatible with standard aircraft on-board power supplies (+20 to +32 VDC). Units are part of Dytran's line of VDC powered instrumentation, and as such, may be compatible with existing installations from other manufacturer's which use similar principles.
Available in two different models with sensitivities of 10 mV/g and 100 mV/g, the 3326A series feature ceramic sensing elements operating in shear mode, packaged in a rugged titanium housing. Design of the 3326A series incorporates a 1/4-28 4-pin radial connector and miniature thru hole mounting, which allows for the sensor to be turned 360 degrees prior to securing, aiding the user during sensor installation. Dytran 3326A series weigh 10 grams, are hermetically sealed for reliable operation in high humidity and dirty environments, and case isolated to avoid EMI/ground loop interference.
