Types 45 -A and 4501-A are cubic piezoelectric ThetaShear accelerometers. These cubic accelerometers have low sensitivity to extraneous environmental effects, which is achieved through the ThetaShear design. The accelerometers feature a 10 – 32 UNF connector. On Type 4500 A, It is positioned on the top surface, which is perpendicular to its main axis. On Type 4501-A, it is positioned on the side surface, which is parallel to its main axis.

The piezoelectric element used is the PZ 23 lead zirconate titanate element. The housing is aluminium.
