EGCS-D5 Shock Testing Accelerometer

Piezoresistive DC accelerometer, rugged design, designed for metal-to-metal mechanical shock tests, impact testing, building construction, pile driving and weapons testing

About the EGCS-D5 Shock Testing Accelerometer

The Model EGCS-D5 accelerometer is critically damped with built-in over-range stops that are set to protect the unit against up to 20,000g shocks. This is ideal for applications which may experience rough handling or in situations where the accelerometer must survive a high initial overload in order to make a low g measurement. These units feature a Wheatstone Bridge output with compensated temperature range of +20 to +80ºC. An inline amplifier option is available for superior signal to noise performance
