Tiny piezoelectric accelerometer

Meggitt's Endevco model 25A, the smallest Isotron piezoelectric accelerometer is designed for very small structures and other objects. With a total weight of just 0.2 gram, the lightweight design effectively reduces unwanted mass loading effects.

Meggitt Sensing Systems, a Meggitt group division, introduced the Endevco model 25A, the world’s smallest Isotron (IEPE-type) piezoelectric accelerometer, designed to support high-reliability vibration measurement requirements on very small structures and objects. With a total weight of just 0.2 gram, its lightweight design effectively reduces unwanted mass loading effects. 

Featuring a durable shear mode construction, the Endevco model 25A reportedly incorporates integral electronics which convert high-impedance input into a low-impedance voltage output through the same cable that supplies the required 4 mA constant current power. Signal ground is isolated from the unit’s mounting surface by a hard anodized surface. The unit comes with two pre-installed, easily field-reparable fine gage (34 AWG) wire output leads, allowing for immediate field use. If required, a new assembly lead may also be reinstalled at the factory. A heavier gage (28 AWG) cable is also provided for extension purposes. In addition, an optional triaxial mounting block (model 2950M16) is available to facilitate three-axis vibration measurement requirements. Units are adhesive mounted with a special field removal tool (model 31275) supplied for convenience.

With its small size and exceptional performance attributes, the Endevco model 25A is well-suited for measuring overall vibration levels of scaled models and smaller electronic components within aerospace, automotive, electronic products, and in-laboratory testing applications, as well as biomedical research. Recommended optional accessories, sold separately, include the model 133 three-channel piezoelectric signal conditioner; the model 4416B low-noise, compact signal conditioner; the model 2775B PE, Isotron and RCC signal conditioner; the model 6634C vibration amplifier; the model 4999 multi-channel signal conditioner; or the Oasis 2000 (4990A-X with cards 428 and/or 433) computer controlled system.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
