Wilcoxon Research's Model 786-500 accelerometer

Aug. 8, 2008
Accelerometer for high speed and low frequency vibration monitoring


Model 786-500 accelerometer is suited to condition monitoring and predictive maintenance of a variety of rotating equipment. Slow speed applications benefit from the 500 mV/g output because it overcomes data collector noise that can mask indicators at low frequencies. In high speed applications, the accelerometer provides five times the sensitivity of general purpose accelerometers for better detection of low level vibrations. The ± 3dB frequency response of the accelerometer is from 0.2 Hz to 14 kHz. The sensitivity is 500 mV/g with a 5% sensitivity tolerance. The acceleration range is 10 g.
