TE 68C Crash Test Accelerometer

TE 68C Crash Test Accelerometer

The TE Connectivity model 68CM1 Triaxial Crash Test Accelerometer offers exceptional performance for ATD dummy instrumentation with best in class frequency response, linearity, transverse sensitivity and long-term drift. The triaxial accelerometer features the next generation of the reliable TE Connectivity piezoresistive chip with superior stability and measurement accuracy. The model 68CM1 accelerometer is available in ranges from ±50g to ±2000g and features a full-bridge configuration with a nominal 4000Ω impedance that offers quick warmup time and minimal drift, unlike lower impedance designs on the market.

The model 68CM1 accelerometer is approved for WorldSID anthropomorphic dummy instrumentation and meets all requirements of SAE-J211 & SAE-J2570, including the <1% transverse sensitivity making this model the only triaxial crash accel on market with a <1% transverse specification.

The 68CM1 features a compact Stainless Steel housing with individual protected sensor sub-assemblies that provide outstanding shock survivability and a flat frequency response up to 4000Hz. This accelerometer has the same wide frequency response on all three axes.
