Dytran’s 3603AXT series rugged sensors for harsh environments

Dytran introduces a new range of rugged sensors designed to withstand harsh,
high-frequency, high energy environments that are otherwise known to damage
sensors.

The new Dytran 3603AXT series of triaxial IEPE accelerometers
incorporates a mechanically and electrically filtered design that allows the
sensor to operate in an environment with high-frequency excitation without
causing amplifier saturation and signal over-range.

Key features of the Dytran 3603AXT series include sense elements internally
isolated from the outer case and enclosed by a Faraday shield for good noise
immunity; latest planar shear sensing technology as well as TEDS functionality;
industry standard 1/4-28 4-pin radial connector and 10-32 stud mounting
capabilities, and available with a sensitivity range of 1-10 mV/g; sensors hermetically
sealed for reliable operation in high humidity and dirty environments; case
isolated to avoid EMI/ground loop interference; and lightweight titanium
housing.

The Dytran 3603AXT series rugged sensors find application in measuring vibration
after a high g event; engine NVH – cylinder head vibration testing; product
drop testing; metal-to-metal impact high frequency application; and general
purpose triaxial vibration measurements.
