Piezoelectric ICP® accelerometers produce a very high signal output (+/- 5 volts full scale) and the ease of two-wire electrical connectivity.

Their inherent ruggedness enables them to be severely over ranged without damage. The addition of internal mechanical isolation decreases the high-frequency stress that would typically be encountered by their ceramic sensing elements.

This mechanical isolation combined with an internal 2-pole electrical filter built into the ICP® circuitry tailors the overall accelerometer response to assure data quality for frequencies as high as 10kHz. Depending on the specific model, accelerations in excess of 50kg can be successfully measured. These modern designs, together with their internal elastomeric isolation materials, are verified through calibration to remain dynamically linear and are enabling piezoelectric accelerometers to operate in increasingly severe acceleration environments.
