Meggitt Sensing Systems' redesigned PCC421 and PCC423 4-20 mA vibration sensors are smaller and lighter
Meggitt has reduced the size of its PCC421 and PCC423 series side exit 4-20 mA vibration sensors. The redesigned PCC421 and PCC423 series are 50% lighter weight than previous versions. The sensors also have a 33% lower profile. The PCC421 and PCC423 series sensors operate at a maximum temperature of 105° C (221° F).
Connector and mounting options have been added. The PCC421 series is available with a traditional MIL-C-5015 connector, as well as the M12 connector. The PCC423 is available with either general-purpose or high-temperature integral cable, each hermetically sealed with a glass-to-metal feedthrough. Both series can be ordered with either a 1/4-28 UNF or M6 captive mounting screw. PCC421 sensors ordered with the M12 connector will be shipped with the M6 captive screw.
The PCC421 and PCC423 series are custom ordered to suit the user’s application. The customer specifies if the 4-20 mA data will be output in terms of acceleration or electrically integrated to velocity within the sensor. Peak or root-mean-square (rms) detection are available. The full scale range is also chosen by the customer, who can select from four measurement ranges at the time of order. The PC421 and PC423 models are only available in versions with true peak detection, Intrinsically Safe certification or dual output of raw vibration data.
