The Model 8011 and Model 8012 are hermetically sealed and operate in temperatures from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C, making them ideal for use in a number of general purpose industrial applications such as monitoring of motors, pumps, compressors or any type of rotating machinery.  The Model 8011 comes with a top exit 2-pin MIL-C-5015 connector and the Model 8012 features an integral cable for installation flexibility.  

Constructed for reliable performance, the 801X series includes internal shielding and reverse wiring protection. The units also incorporate annular shear mode crystals for stable long term operation.

The new accelerometers offer a <5% transverse sensitivity and a frequency response from 10 Hz to 5,000 Hz (600 cpm to 30,000 cpm).  Each unit can withstand shock up to 5,000 g. 

Technical Specifications

  • 4 mA to 20mA loop power
  • True RMS or Peak output options
  • -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C operating range
  • +/-5 g to +/-50 g dynamic range with less than 5% transverse sensitivity
  • 10 Hz to 5,000 Hz bandwidth

Pricing and delivery for the new 801X Accelerometer is dependent upon quantity ordered.
