Triaxial ICP Accelerometers

Triaxial accelerometers are designed with three orthogonal sensing elements to enable simultaneous multi-axis measurements (x-, y-, and z-axis). Smaller units minimize mass loading effects and permit installation into confined areas. A unit with a tapped hole in its base may be secured with a screw passing through the object under test to aid in axis alignment, or may be stud-mounted to a separate adhesive mounting base.

These units typically feature a 4-pin electrical connector (for a single cable hook-up) or an integral 4-conductor cable. Types include High Temperature, Miniature, General Purpose, Modal Array, Seat Pad, or Filtered accelerometers. See accessories for additional mounting equipment or calibration notes for information on calibration. Contact us for detailed selection assistance, or for unique requirements not shown.

Notes on Calibration
Back to Top

Calibration data is provided electronically (on CD or USB memory stick) or as printed copies, depending on quantity rented and end-user preference.

The Modal Shop has internal calibration intervals set for most test products at 1 year. ANSI/ISO/IEC 17025:2000 makes clear that it is the responsibility of the end-user organization (in this case, the renter) to determine the appropriate calibration interval under the requirements of its own quality system. Per this, calibration certificates of rented equipment have "calibrated on" dates, but blank "calibration due" dates. Rentals ship with a customer specific expected return date in mind - if equipment is expected out for 5 months, the last calibration date will be within the past 7 months. Calibration to additional standards (e.g. Z540 or specific FAA requirements) are possible, but there may be an additional charge.

The Modal Shop's Scope of Accreditation can be found here. An example of a calibrations certificate can be found here. Please contact us with questions or if a different calibration will be needed for your rental sensors.

Notes on TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet)
Back to Top

The TEDS option is available on several rental transducers. TEDS stands for Transducer Electronic Data Sheet and provides memory within a sensor with manufacturer name, sensor type, model number, serial number and calibration data. It is an approved IEEE standard (1451.4), and many data acquisition manufacturers include the ability to read TEDS sensors. Not sure if your DAQ has TEDS capability? No problem; TEDS sensors can be used alongside non-TEDS sensors with no issues; the TEDS memory is bypassed. Want more information? See our TEDS FAQ.
