TE 1201 Crash Test Accelerometer

TE 1201 Crash Test Accelerometer

The Model 1201 & 1201F Series Accelerometers are some of the most popular auto safety test accelerometers used in crush zone installations. The accelerometers feature the next evolution of the reliable TE Connectivity piezoresistive MEMS sensor, with optimum amount of internal gas damping for outstanding shock survivability and a flat amplitude response up to frequencies greater than 6000Hz (1000g & 2000g ranges).

The model 1201 & 1201F accelerometers are available in ranges from ±50g to ±2000g and feature a full-bridge configuration with a nominal 4000Ω impedance that offers quick warm-up time and minimal drift, far superior to competitive sensors in market.

The accelerometers are packaged in a rugged housing with a shielded low-noise cable specifically designed for crush zone testing. The model 1201 is design for adhesive mounting while the 1201F has an integral flange for screw mounting with supplied #2-56 socket head cap screws.

The model 1201 & 1201F series accelerometers are fully encapsulated in Stycast for IP65 protection over the full operating temperature range of -20°C to +85°C. TE
Connectivity also supplies the calibration data in a user friendly excel format which enables high volume users to quickly upload the calibration information for each sensor installed.
