IEPE accelerometer from VIP sensors is intended for general vibration measurements on structures and objects.

San Juan Capistrano, CA —A new, integral-electronics piezoelectric (IEPE) accelerometer from VIP Sensors features a high signal-to-noise ratio, high output sensitivity, and wide bandwidth up to 10 kHz.

Model 2010A is a stud-mounted device intended for general vibration measurements on structures and objects and is sealed against external contamination. Signal ground is connected to the outer case of the unit. When used with an isolating mounting stud, the device is electrically isolated from ground.

Accelerometer transmits low impedance voltage output through the same cable that supplies current power, and includes a side connector used with a 10-ft coaxial cable terminated with a 10-32 connector for error-free operations. Operating temperature range is -4-248 °F (-20-120 °C).
