Rent Calibrated Ultra Miniature Triaxial Accelerometers

Low Mass Triaxial Accelerometers for Tight Spaces or Minimal Mass Loading

Triaxial accelerometers are designed with three orthogonal sensing elements to enable simultaneous multi-axis measurements (x-, y-, and z-axis). Smaller, low mass accelerometers minimize mass loading effects and permit installation into confined areas.

Ultra Miniature Accelerometer Applications

  • Environmental Stress Screening (ESS)
  • Mechanical shock testing
  • PC board validation
  • Product response testing
  • Any testing in which available space is limited

Mounting Tools and Tips for Ultra-Miniature Accelerometers     Back to Top

Users should be aware that the addition of any mass (such as an adhesive or a magnetic mounting base) to an accelerometer lowers the resonant frequency of the sensing system and may affect the accuracy and limits of the accelerometer's usable frequency range. However, adhesive mounting is sometimes the only available option to fasten an accelerometer to a test object.

When using an adhesive mounting technique, it is recommend to use a mounting base whenever possible to preserve the accelerometer's useful life. These adapters are normally first glued to the test surface, then the accelerometers are stud mounted to them. Most adhesive mounting bases available from PCB® are constructed of anodized aluminum and provide electrical isolation, eliminating potential noise pick-up and ground loop problems.

No matter what mounting technique is being used, the surface preparation is crucial for obtaining the best measurement results. A smooth and flat machined surface will achieve a higher degree of surface contact and thus the best high frequency transmissibility. When using the adhesive mount method, expect high frequency responses to be dampened in direct relationship to the mass of the accelerometer.

Select mounting and removal tools.

Petro wax provides a simple mounting method for many applications meeting all of the following conditions:

  • Temperatures below 160°F/70°C
  • Acceleration levels below ±20g
  • Sensors under 40 gram mass
  • Frequencies generally below 3000Hz

Quick Bond Gel.  Cyanoacrylate-based mounting methods offer an ideal mounting method for lightweight accelerometers (under 20 grams). A fast room temperature cure time coupled with both wide useable frequency and temperature ranges makes this option very popular. Be sure to use a debonder such as acetone and wait a few minutes before removing the sensor.
