The Sherborne Sensors’ A545 range of multi-axis accelerometers measure vector acceleration in three mutually perpendicular planes with high accuracy and incorporate piezo-resistive strain gauge bridge sensors incorporating gas damping. Unlike fluid damped devices, the gas damping employed is essentially independent of temperature. The transducer also incorporates positive mechanical stops conferring excellent shock resistance. The accelerometer is compensated for the effects of temperature on both sensitivity and zero.
Typical applications include biomechanical investigations, data acquisition systems, crash test, impact, shock and vibration analysis.
Designed for operation from a DC power source, the A545 is packaged in a robust light alloy housing with solder pin connections. The accelerometer has a wide-range useable frequency response from DC to several kHz. In addition to the instruments offered in this bulletin Sherborne Sensors design and develop accelerometers for specific applications. These custom designed units can be manufactured and tested to conform to specific requirements and standards.
