TE 58 Accelerometer

TE 58 Accelerometer

The TE Connectivity model 58 vibration sensor is the most popular auto safety test accelerometer used in crush zone installations. The accelerometer features the next evolution of the reliable piezoresistive MEMS sensor tailored for auto safety test applications.

The model 58 accelerometer is available in ranges from ±50g to ±6000g and features a full-bridge configuration with a nominal 4000Ω impedance that offers quick warm-up time and minimal drift, unlike lower impedance designs on the market.

The accelerometer is packaged in a rugged housing with a shielded low noise cable specifically designed for crush zone testing. The model 58 has a thick housing wall which allows user to mount the accelerometer on all four sides for various acceleration axes measurements. An ideal amount of internal gas damping provides outstanding shock survivability and a flat amplitude and phase response up to frequencies well beyond 7000Hz.

The model 58 accelerometer is fully encapsulated in Stycast for IP66 protection over the full operating temperature range of -40°C to +121°C.
