Wilcoxon Research, a supplier of vibration sensors and sensor networks, is introducing two compact industrial accelerometers, the 780B and 780C.

The sensors are part of Wilcoxon’s family of narrow, low-profile, lightweight sensors that are suitable for walk-around collection of vibration monitoring data.

The 780A, 780B, and 780C are full-performance, 100mV/g general purpose vibration sensors.

The sensitivity tolerance is the primary differentiator between the 780A (+5 per cent), 780B (+10 per cent), and 780C (+15 per cent).

The 780 family of sensors has an 80g acceleration range and a +3dB frequency response from 0.4Hz to 14kHz.

The 780 family of sensors has a standard two-pin, MIL-C-5015 connector that is compatible with the existing data collection infrastructure and fits the same connector used on the majority of industrial accelerometers.

The accelerometers are ideal for route-based data collection and fit in areas where space is at a premium.

They can also be used for permanent mounting in locations where a narrow diameter (less than 0.7in) is needed.

The 780 sensors are suited to the harshest industrial environments, are rugged, encased in 316L stainless steel, hermetically sealed, ESD protected, and EMI / RFI shielded.

They operate normally at temperatures from -50 to 120C and replace the 788A and 784A.

The 780 family is appropriate for vibration monitoring of most industrial rotating equipment such as fans, motors, pumps, blowers, compressors, chillers, gearboxes and mixers.

This machinery is commonly found in industries such as pulp and paper, nuclear power, power generation, petrochemical, oil and gas, food and beverage, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, railway, steel making, and water and wastewater treatment.
