Acceleration Sensitivity

In a pressure transducer or impulse hammer, this refers to the unwanted out- put signal from the sensor in response to vibration in the sensitive axis of the sensor. This parameter is specified in terms of psi/g for pressure sensors and Lbs/g for impulse hammers. Certain Dytran sensors such as the Series 2200 and 2300 pressure sensors and the DynapulseTM series of impulse hammers are acceleration compensated to minimize this effect.
