Durham Instruments carries more than a dozen categories of accelerometers in its unmatched inventory of test and measurement products. Businesses use these devices to capture vibration information from test articles under varying dynamic load cases, in such common tasks as drop testing, material-properties investigation, and monitoring blast and high-shock events.
One product category with plenty of options available is a series of Brüel & Kjær and TE Connectivity CCLD, piezoresistive, and piezoelectric accelerometers.
A broad range of applications
Customers can conduct a broad range of applications through the use of the appropriate accelerometer technology, from machine and structural monitoring to various modal-analysis systems. This particular lineup of solutions includes almost 70 models manufactured by Brüel & Kjær. For example, Durham Instruments carries devices designed for modal analysis, structural analysis, general-purpose vibration sensing, measurements on lightweight structures, flight-test applications, small or confined spaces, and continuous high-temperature operation.
The Brüel & Kjær lineup includes dozens of CCLD accelerometers, such as miniature models and triaxial models. Some of them are also piezoelectric accelerometers. For example, there are versions with or without cables, with side connectors or top connectors, with slots, and in teardrop shapes, while a few devices have tapped holes or adhesive mounts. Piezoelectric accelerometers by Brüel & Kjær include many instruments built for modal analysis, plus a couple for structural analysis. Others are useful for low-level measurement or vibration measurement in harsh environments.
There are also numerous CCLD accelerometers by TE, some of them with high performance, some with a triaxial design, and a few for isolated high temperatures. These devices come in a broad variety of shapes and dynamic ranges. Among the options available are a triaxial seat-pad accelerometer, a miniature high-performance version for high-frequency shock and vibration measurements, stud-mounted models, instruments for modal analysis, and models with internal shielding. There are a total of 23 TE accelerometers available in this main category.
Durham Instruments carries other categories of accelerometers for other needs, like charge-mode, crash-test, digital, force-balanced, MEMS, specialty, angular, board-level, and cable accelerometers. Mounting accessories are also available, plus other accelerometer instrumentation.
