Accelerometers and Piezo Velocity Sensors

All CTC accelerometers feature a welded stainless steel construction for survival in harsh factory environments. A dual case design shields the sensing element from RFI & EMI interference. PZT ceramic sensing elements are utilized to provide the highest signal to noise ratio available, which is critical for use with data collectors, which often integrate an acceleration signal to velocity. Low Frequency noise (ski slopes) are avoided by utilizing an accelerometer with a low noise PZT ceramic sensing element. Shear mode element construction is utilized in low frequency models, which virtually eliminates erroneous output due to thermal transient interference. Two pin MIL spec connectors are used to carry the signal output from the accelerometer, protecting the shielding and hermetic sealing of the accelerometer. To ensure the highest quality product, 100% of CTC sensors are individually helium leak tested and all CTC labeled sensors are backed by our unconditional lifetime warranty.
