New 649°C Accelerometer from Dytran

The Dytran model 3335C single axis charge mode accelerometer operates up to +649°C with allowable excursions to 700˚C. The model has 1-2 pC/g sensitivity with a 2500Hz upper-frequency range and is installed using a 10-32 mounting screw with a lock-wire hole for securing the sensor to the structure. It featuresRead More

LXRS & LXRS+ Wireless Protocols

This article will attempt to explain the difference between the LORD Sensing MicroStrain term LXRS and their new LXRS+ wireless communication protocol. Lossless eXtended Range Synchronized is the proprietary LORD Sensing data communications protocol used in their wireless sensor network. It was initially developed in 2013 to support applications includingRead More

New Introduction to Piezo-electric Accelerometers

We would like to draw attention to a publication that we have recently added to the resources section of our web site. This is the Introduction to Piezo-electric Accelerometers that informs readers about the main points of accelerometer design and describes the various specifications that should be considered in choosingRead More

Traceable Accelerometer Calibration at Temperature

Many vibration tests are carried out under the influence of temperature, whereby accelerometers are attached to the vibration exciter and/or to the device under test. These are thus exposed to temperatures which can be far above or below room temperature, which is where the sensors are usually calibrated. Calibration ofRead More

Migrating from GX4 to GX5 Inertial Sensors

The 3DM-GX5 is the latest generation of the LORD MicroStrain 3DM-GX series of IMU, VG, AHRS, and GPS-INS sensors. This is truly a “drop-in” replacement for the previous-generation GX4 inertial sensors, making it extremely simple to upgrade. The GX5 shares the same extended temperature range operation, footprint, rugged aluminium case,Read More

New G-Link-200 Wireless Accelerometer

LORD MicroStrain have recently introduced the new G-Link-200-8G ruggedized high-speed triaxial accelerometer node with user settable ± 2 to ± 8 g measurement range. The G-Link-200-8G includes an on-board triaxial accelerometer that allows high-resolution data acquisition at noise levels as low as 25 μg/√Hz, and the accelerometers have a bandwidthRead More
