9155D Accelerometer Calibration Workstation

Turnkey Model 9155

Quick Links: Video Tutorial, Optional Additions, Basic Specs, Included Accessories

PCB is the world leader in piezoelectric and measurement grade MEMS accelerometers.  Users from the world's largest aerospace companies and the major automotive manufacturers, to research labs and consumers projects - have confidence in us with  their accurate and high throughput calibration needs.  TMS offers precise, elegant and efficient automated accelerometer calibration, providing metrology control and confidence. 

The Accelerometer Calibration Workstation Model 9155 offers accurate back-to-back comparison calibrations of ICP® (IEPE) and charge mode piezoelectric accelerometers in accordance with ISO 16063-21. The 9155 system also calibrates piezoresistive (MEMS), capacitive, and velocity sensors via available options. Benefits of the Model 9155 form in two areas: conformance to existing standards and automation of the calibration task.

  • Proven - Global recognition as market leader
  • Accurate - Ensures traceable calibrations to NIST and PTB
  • Simple - Turnkey system includes all necessary components
  • Fast - Calibration typically performed in under a minute per axis
  • Familiar - Windows PC supplies intuitive user interface
  • Versatile - Define multiple pass/fail criteria for each test and automatically recall them from the internal database
  • Customized - Prints customizable ISO 17025 compliant certificates
  • Automatic - Set-up tests, acquire data, save results and print reports with ease, precision and automation
