October 13, 2021, Depew, NY – Endevco today announced the release of a new accelerometer for high g shock applications such as rocket sled testing, studying the effects of pyroshock events, train crash testing, and weapons testing. Model 7274A is a rugged, triaxial, piezoresistive accelerometer designed for high-acceleration shock measurements in three mutually perpendicular axes. The 7274A is undamped for exceptional linearity and minimal phase shift with fast response time.

“Cable noise is an important consideration in high-shock, dynamic environments because the cable can be jarred or impacted, even when it is carefully tied-down. This generates static build up, which can flow through to the conductors and appear in accelerometer output,” said Jennifer MacDonell, MEMS product line manager at Endevco. “The housing on Model 7274 features a robust, low noise, eight-conductor cable that can repeatedly withstand the high-acceleration shock environment.”

“Model 7274A is available in 2K, 6K, 20K and 60K g full scale ranges. It features high resonance frequency and is rugged to three times the full scale range.”
