8042-VR | 8042-VP Submersible Vibration Sensor

Submersible velocity transmitter designed for harsh environments

About the 8042-VR | 8042-VP Submersible Vibration Sensor

The Model 8042-VR/VP is a submersible velocity transmitter designed for harsh environments. The transmitter is available in ranges from 0.5 to 5.0 in/sec, in either 4-20mA RMS or Peak velocity output options, and features a welded Titanium housing. The model 8042 features an integral cable that is custom designed for submersible applications and features a unique water block feature that self-seals in the event of accidental cuts to the cable. The accelerometer includes internal shielding and a usable bandwidth to 1000Hz.
