Accelerometers / Vibration Sensors

An accelerometer uses a spring‐mass system to generate a force proportional to the vibration responding to a wide range of research and industry test applications. Our piezoelectric charge accelerometers and CCLD accelerometers feature ICP©, DeltaTron™, and TEDS technology - enabling easy setup and consistent measurement results. With single-axis and three-axis (triaxial accelerometer) configurations, the adaptability of our accelerometers is extensive.

OVER 70 YEARS OF INNOVATION

In 1943, Per V. Brüel, developed the world's first commercial piezoelectric accelerometer from Rochelle salt crystals.

In fact, many of the accelerometers being used today are based on Brüel & Kjær technology.

HISTORY OF THE ACCELEROMETER 


Accelerometers for Vibration Measurements

Brüel & Kjær offers a broad spectrum of vibration measurement solutions that respond to varying needs and applications. The adaptability is evident in the range of accelerometers designed for specific environments, industries, tasks and conditions, as well as general purpose instruments that provide a wide operational range.

We offer the following Accelerometers:

  • Piezoelectric Charge Accelerometers
  • Piezoelectric CCLD Accelerometers
Charge accelerometer


Piezoelectric Charge Accelerometers

A charge‐type piezoelectric accelerometer is a robust unit designed specifically for high‐temperature vibration measurement. Its unique sensor design allows high dynamic range, long‐term stability and ruggedness in the same package. Brüel & Kjær offers both single axial and triaxial charge accelerometers.

 

CCLD Accelerometer


CCLD Accelerometers

A CCLD accelerometer is designed specifically to make vibration measurement easy because the needed preamplifier is built into the accelerometer unit. It features low impedance output enabling the use of inexpensive cable and can drive long cables. Brüel & Kjær offers both single axial and triaxial CCLD accelerometers. 


Industrial Accelerometer


Industrial Accelerometers

An industrial accelerometer with its rugged design is robust and reliable and covers a wide range of permanent vibration monitoring applications including operations in wet, dusty and potentially explosive areas. Charge and CCLD types are both available. Charge types are especially excellent for high‐temperature measurements.
