Dytran Product Update
Dytran has upgraded their general purpose 3055B and 3056B product families to the 3055D and 3056D. These workhorse hermetically sealed accelerometers are characterised by low noise, high resonant frequencies (> 35KHz), a tight sensitivity specification of +/- 5% and a frequency response of 1Hz – 10KHz.
Especially popular as modal response accelerometers and for shaker control, these product families have strong worldwide demand in many general purpose applications as well. The all welded titanium housings provide a durable, lightweight, low cost product. The new 3055D and 3056D series offer an enhanced isolation design and a larger hex design for easier grip. The 3055D features a horizontal 10-32 electrical connector and is offered in acceleration ranges between 10g and 500g with optional TEDs. The 3056D family features a top 10-32 electrical connector and is offered in acceleration ranges between 10g and 1000g with optional TEDs. The product isolation design moves the isolation from an external epoxied isolation base to an internal isolation, with the large outer hex also isolated from internal electrical grounds as well as the mounting base. The larger hex design adds to the ruggedness of the unit providing a larger surface to grip for torque application. The electronics amplifier design has remained the same as well as the footprint of the devices, making them backward compatible with the 3055B/3056B families which are being discontinued.
Please ask for detailed specifications for these sensors and let us know about any suitable general purpose vibration application that you might have, so that we can advise on the best choice of accelerometer.
