The Endevco model 72 series are low mass accelerometers suitable for SMT mounting. The accelerometer is intended to be used in a wide range of acceleration, vibration, and shock applications. The first range available is 20,000 g. The model 72 features minimal mass loading, broad frequency response, minimum zero shift following a shock event and a Class 3 Rating (>4000 V – Human Body Model) for ESD Protection. For high g applications, the strength of the solder joints is not sufficient to withstand high forces, so the model 72 must be epoxied (underfilled) to the PCB, or hard potted.
The model 72 uses a unique micro-machined, piezoresistive sensor with light gas damping to attenuate resonant amplitudes, and mechanical stops to reduce breakage under overload conditions. The monolithic sensor incorporates the latest MEMS technology for ruggedness, stability and reliability to 4X overrange. The accelerometer features a fouractive arm bridge circuit. With a frequency response extending down to dc (steady state acceleration) and a minimum post shock zero shift, this accelerometer is ideal for measuring long duration shocks.
