Wilcoxon Research's industrial accelerometers are engineered for online monitoring and portable data collection
Wilcoxon Research introduces two full-performance, compact, industrial accelerometers, the 780B and the 780C. These two sensors join the 780A to create a family of narrow, low-profile and lightweight sensors designed for walk-around collection of vibration monitoring data. The key difference between the three accelerometers is sensitivity tolerance, which customers can select based upon their application.
The 780A, 780B and 780C are full-performance, 100 mV/g general purpose vibration sensors. The sensitivity tolerance is the primary differentiator between the 780A (+5%), 780B (+10%) and 780C (+15%). The 780 family of sensors has an 80 g acceleration range and a +3dB frequency response from 0.4 Hz to 14 kHz. The 780 family of sensors hasa standard two-pin, MIL-C-5015 connector that is compatible with the existing data collection infrastructure and fits the same connector used on the majority of industrial accelerometers.
The 780 family of accelerometers is designed for route-based data collection because it is small and lightweight for easy handling. These compact vibration sensors fit in areas where space is at a premium and can also be used for permanent mounting in locations where a narrow diameter (less than 0.7 inches) is needed.
The 780 sensors are rugged, encased in 316L stainless steel, hermetically sealed, ESD protected and EMI / RFI shielded. The 780 sensors operate normally at temperatures as low as -50ºC and as high as 120ºC.
Like other vibration sensors in Wilcoxon’s line of general purpose accelerometers, the 780 family of accelerometers is appropriate for vibration monitoring of most industrial rotating equipment, such as fans, motors, pumps, blowers, compressors, chillers, gearboxes and mixers, to reduce failure rates in the field.
