Triax for Operation Deflection Shape

Triax for Operation Deflection Shape

Triax for Operation Deflection Shape

Looking for small triaxial accelerometers for ODS on small, complex, plastic assemblies.
5-250 Hz, 5 G maximum, 4 mm maximum any dimension.

RE: Triax for Operation Deflection Shape

I doubt you'll find a triax that small. The little Endevco uniaxials are that size, and when I was looking around for accelerometers to test 1/5 scale BIW models they were the best we could find. In the end I think we used the strobe more than anything else, and did a visual correlation back to the FEA model.

So, try Endevco as the best shot.

Just checked, Endevco model 23 is their smallest triax in the catalogue I have, but it is 5x6x8 mm

Yes Endevco claims that the Model 23,  http://www.endevco.com/test/products-all-numerical-set.html is the worlds smallest tri-axial.  I also note that the sensitivity is only 0.4 pc/g or 4 pC/m/s2.  There is a tradeoff for size.

I have always found that the cabling for small triaxials is difficult.  A small triaxial is good but keeping the 3 cables out of the way can pose some problems when you have a light structure.  Single axis accelerometers will be smaller and could be easier to mount in the long run.

Good luck.

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
