The Model MA15 is a low cost amplified piezoelectric accelerometer which is designed to be used in Industrial test and automation environments; including laboratory testing, modal studies and test cells. 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 Model MA15 features a high natural frequency, a wide frequency range and a flat sensitivity vs. temperature response over the temperature range. 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 MA15 is available in a number of configurations and options that include connector or integral stainless steel armored cable (specify length at time of ordering) and an intrinsically safe option. The mounting hole can be supplied with different threads. The Model MA15 can be supplied in a number of different sensitivities to suit the expected vibration levels for the application.
