The Model MAQ14 charge output miniature accelerometer is designed to be used in Industrial test and automation environments; including laboratory testing, modal studies and test cells where high temperatures are likely to be encountered and where space is limited and small size is desired or a high natural frequency is required. The MAQ14 is a self generating piezoelectric transducer which has no internal electronics and requires no external power for operation. These units are usually connected to a local charge amplifier that is mounted as near as possible in a lower temeperature environment. 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.
