Piezoelectric Charge Accelerometers

Piezoelectric accelerometers (charge output) are the original design that utilise piezoelectric material to generate an electrical charge which is proportional to the applied acceleration. These devices have many benefits due to their higher operating temperature and robust design with no internal electronics to limit operational use.

Use of PE charge output accelerometers does need some care as they require high quality low noise cables with clean connectors that should always be kept clean of any dirt or contaminents. In addition they also require external charge amplifiers to convert the natural charge output into volts before being measured by DAQ or vibration controller hardware.

Our range of PE accelerometers will be extended soon with the release of several designs of triaxial accelerometers

In addition to PE charge output accelerometers we also supply a full range of IEPE accelerometers. These feature integral amplifier electronics, these can be connected directly to many DAQ systems.

PE accelerometers require charge amplifiers, Kemo have a wide range of solutions, visit our charge amplifier pages for details.
