WOODLYN, Pa., June 13, 2011 — The 6000 series microminiature accelerometers from Columbia Research Laboratories Inc. have been perfected over the years so that they may be used for general-purpose work. Originally intended exclusively for studies where space and weight restrictions were major factors, they now feature detachable cables, an inverted seismic element for mechanical isolation, and other features normally available only on standard size units. All are equipped with the proprietary microminiature detachable cable and connector assemblies. The 7000 series accelerometers are true microminiature “shear mode” design transducers that offer performance characteristics and accuracies normally available only with the more conventional size devices. The Model 7001 weighs only 2.8 g and features a charge sensitivity of 3 pC/g and a wide frequency range out to 5 kHz. High-temperature models of both series are available and will operate to 260 °C. These miniature accelerometers are suitable for general-purpose shock and vibration measurement work. Designed for measuring medium- to high-frequency and moderate- to high-level shock and vibration, they are well suited for testing small specimens.
