An accelerometer is a sensor that senses the dynamic motion of the surface that it is attached to by producing an electrical output which is. The mounting of a vibration sensor (accelerometer) directly impacts on its performance. Incorrect mounting may give readings that relate not only to a change in. Accelerometer Mounting Techniques are described as far as Mounting Surface Preparation, Installation and a variety of methods.

Guidelines for Mounting Test Accelerometers

Sensitivity is the output voltage produced by a certain force measured in g’s. Since the charge is proportional to the force, and the mass is a constant, then the charge is also proportional to the acceleration.

A accelreometer screw can also be used to mount an accelerometer with a tapped hole onto a thin structure see Figure 3B. In general, magnetic adapters should be used with discretion and they are rarely trusted at frequencies above 1 kHz. ACC shown is a high quality low cost accelerometer for general purpose applications. The frequency of the AC output voltage will match the frequency of the vibrations.

There is no universal debonding agent available due to the variety of adhesives super glues, dental cement, epoxies, etc. To prevent such damage, do not allow the magnet to snap on to the test structure.

Accelerometer Mounting

M3, M5, M8 and M UA Small swivel base set of What is the size and shape of the sample to be monitored? Sheet metal or plastic parts and other thin and flexible components are unsuited for accelerometer mounting. Industrial Grade Accelerometer Industrial grade accelerometers are the workhorses of industry. UA Set of plastic clips for mounting directly on object surface.


This ensures the exact duplication of motion of both bodies at all frequencies. Does the area require Intrinsically safe or explosion proof mounrings

Small High-temperature Clip, insulated set of 5. The output does not “cut-off ” but the sensitivity decreases rapidly with lower frequencies. Low Frequency Cut-off is the frequency where the output starts to fall off below the stated accuracy.

Press onto the test object acceleromete. The screw engagement length should always be checked to ensure that the screw does not bottom out into the accelerometer base. Gently slide the sensor with the magnet to the place. A low impedance accelerometer has a charge accelerometer as its front end but has a tiny built-in micro-circuit and FET transistor that converts that charge into a low impedance voltage that can easily interface mounrings standard instrumentation.

How To Mount Accelerometers Correctly

Log In Need an Account? Magnetic Mounting Magnetic Mounting attaches accelerometers to ferromagnetic surfaces and gives the users an advantage in that the accelerometer can be moved quickly from place to place. To achieve a higher degree of surface contact, apply a thin layer of silicone grease between the accelerometer base and the mounting surface. However, despite the importance of getting it right, poor mounting is a surprisingly common practice, much to the detriment of manufacturers.


DV Large Calibration Clip for mounting acceleometer under calibration. Stud Mounting The stud mount method is the preferred method of mounting an accelreometer to the test object. Figure 17 compares the typical high frequency performance of some mounting methods as a result of added mass and reduced mounting stiffness. Laboratory Accelerometer for High Vibration Levels. Typically accelerometwr range is to C.

Is the surface where the accelerometer is to be mounted grounded? The first type is a “high impedance” charge output accelerometer. Frequency Response is determined by kountings mass, the piezoelectric properties of the crystal, and the resonance frequency of the case.

Make sure that the mounting stud is not too long resulting in a gap between sensor and test object. For vertical measurement, sensors should be located on the motor and pump drive end bearings.

Typically specified in g’s. Triaxial Mounting Block for DC and response accelerometers. Item added to your cart. Striking the accelerometer will damage it. What is the frequency range to be monitored?

Accelerometer probe M5. Set of plastic clips for mounting directly on object surface. Cable clamps M5 M3. A scratched accelerometer base can be applied to a lapping plate for restoration of flatness.

Steel pads can be welded or epoxied in place to accept the magnetic base when surfaces are uneven or non-magnetic.
