Accelerometer High Output Broadband Frequency

Product Announcement from Meggitt Sensing Systems - Wilcoxon Research

 Accelerometer High Output Broadband Frequency-Image

The new 786-500, from Meggitt's Wilcoxon Research, provides a high output broadband frequency response for multi-use applications

Low frequency applications - strong 500 mV/g output overcomes data collector noise

High speed applications - 5X the sensitivity for better detection of low level vibrations

500 mV/g accelerometers minimize electronic noise and maximize voltage output to the monitoring instrument. The ability to provide a stronger, cleaner signal is important to applications like:

  • Turbocompressors
  • Precision balanced high speed machinery
  • Cooling tower fans
  • Slow speed gearboxes
  • Wind turbines
  • Food processing equipment
  • Slow speed agitators
  • Paper machine rollers
  • Large fans
