Type 8315 single-axis accelerometer

Kistler Instruments has introduced the Type 8315 single-axis accelerometer, which is particularly suitable for low-frequency applications, including automobile ride quality, wind-tunnel investigations and aerospace testing where structural vibration and dynamics are used to assess performance, reliability and integrity parameters.

Other research and development (R&D) applications for the Type 8315 include human motion studies, robotics and platform motion control systems.

A temperature output is provided for use where external temperature compensation of the output signal is required.
