The Model MAQ36 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 MAQ36 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 temperature environment. The Model MAQ36 features 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.
