NEW Mechanically & Electrically Filtered Sensor

Featured Product from Dytran Instruments, Inc.


This innovative sensor is a single-axis IEPE quartz accelerometer with a thru-hole design for 360-degree cable orientation. Model 3168D2 features mechanical and electrical filters that effectively eliminate ultra-high frequency energy that can cause signal saturation (common in high-speed gearbox applications). The filters also act as a barrier to “zero shift” phenomena in the data by protecting the sensing element from high amplitude, high-frequency mechanical impacts.  In addition, the filters suppress the natural frequency of the sensor to assure correct “in-band” vibration measurements during all test applications. The sensing element is internally isolated from the outer case to prevent ground loops and is enclosed by a Faraday shield that prevents EMI/RFI interference.
