Measurement Specialties Introduces Its New Model 4332 Accelerometer for Infrastructure Monitoring

Share Article

The Model 4332 triaxial accelerometer from Measurement Specialties is an innovative sensor that monitors small motions that affect large structures. This small but rugged sensor is suitable for permanent installations or can be easily attached for short term tests.

Glen MacGibbon, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing stated, “The Model 4332 was specifically designed to assist engineers in the monitoring of such critical infrastructures as highway overpasses, bridges, underground tunnels and passageways.

Measurement Specialties, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEAS) has just released to production the Model 4332 triaxial accelerometer for safety monitoring of public infrastructures. This sensor features damped MEMS sensing technology, an amplified output and is packaged in a rugged aluminum housing with integral cable assembly. It is offered in ranges from ±2 and ±5g with a low-pass filter set at 50Hz. This temperature compensated device has an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and complies with IP68 requirements for submersion in water to a ten meter depth.

Designed to be screw-mounted, this device can also be adhesively mounted for tests of short duration. It operates from 5-30 VDC excitation and offers a 0.5-4.5V full scale output. The output is DC-coupled and is used in single-ended mode.

Each unit is packaged with an NIST traceable calibration certificate. Post sale factory calibration is supported by MEAS’s California Vibration Design Center and its two manufacturing facilities in China and France. These accelerometers are warranted for a period of one year from date of shipment to original purchaser to be free from defects in material and workmanship.

Measurement Specialties, Inc. designs and manufactures sensors and sensor-based systems. The company produces a wide variety of sensors and transducers to measure precise ranges of physical characteristics such as pressure, force, vibration, torque, position, temperature, humidity, fluid properties, mass air flow and photo optics. Measurement Specialties uses multiple advanced technologies – including piezo-resistive, electro-optic, electro-magnetic, variable reluctance, magneto resistive, digital encoders, thermistors, thermocouples, RTDs, capacitive, resonant beam, application specific integrated circuits (ASICs), micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), piezoelectric polymers and strain gauges to engineer sensors that operate accurately and cost-effectively in customers' applications.
