TE 64X Crash Test Accelerometer

TE 64X Crash Test Accelerometer

The TE Connectivity model 64X is the most advanced accelerometer ever released for anthropomorphic dummy instrumentation. The accelerometer features a full bridge output configuration with ideal gas damping tailored for outstanding shock survivability and a flat frequency response to >8kHz. The model 64X accelerometer has a standard cross-talk accuracy of <2% (with option for <1%), a standard ZMO of <±20mV and a linearity accuracy specification of <±0.70%.

The model 64X crash test accelerometer is offered in ranges from ±50 to ±6000g and has distinct colored cables specified for each model so the g-range can visually be identified by the instrumentation engineer during testing.

The crash test accelerometer has a standard operating temperature range of -40°C to +121°C and is fully encapsulated in Stycast for IP66 environmental protection rating. The nominal 4000Ω bridge impedance limits current draw resulting in quick <10 second warm-up time and minimal drift, unlike lower impedance designs on the market which are subject to much longer warm-up time due to gage heating effects.
