The Model MA12 low profile amplified piezoelectric accelerometers are designed to be used in Industrial test and automation environments; including laboratory testing, modal studies and test cells where head room is limited and where a low profile unit is desirable. The constant current low output impedance output combined with the ability to drive high load capacitance allows long runs of low cost cable without degradation of data. The seismic element is mechanically isolated from the mounting base, resulting in a low base strain sensitivity. The stainless steel materials are non-magnetic resulting in very low magnetic field susceptibility. These features, together with a sealed body, assure accurate and reliable data. The Model MA12 can be supplied in a number of different sensitivites to suit the expected vibration levels for the application.
