Magnetic Mounting Bases

! Use caution when using magnetic bases, as the installation force can cause excessive shock and damage the sensor. Install the magnet base on the edge and "roll" the assembly gently into position, or install the magnet base to the test object first and then attach the sensor.

080A109

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 ±20 g
  • Sensors under 40 gram mass
  • Frequencies generally below 3000Hz

One square is 1”x1”x0.25”


080A90

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.
