Meggitt Sensing Systems has added three Wilcoxon accelerometers with M12 connectors to its product line.

The M12 connector enables vibration monitoring where the existing infrastructure is already built around the M12 standard – in the process industries, for example.

Several compatible M12 connector-cable assemblies are also available.

Accelerometers with M12 connectors reduce downtime by monitoring rotating machinery and providing advance warning of an impending fault.

The M12 connector is said to make this easier because it is compatible with the existing infrastructure and stock of cables and connectors.

The M12-style accelerometers are 100mV/g general-purpose vibration sensors, all with high sensitivity tolerance and an acceleration range of 80g.

Wilcoxon Research accelerometers are hermetically sealed using a fused glass-to-metal connector and all-welded construction, and are rated for operation in environments up to 120C.

The 786A-M12 is a top-exit sensor with a +5 per cent sensitivity tolerance.

The 787AM8-M12 is a low-profile, side-exit sensor with a +5 per cent sensitivity tolerance.

The 787BM8-M12 is a low-profile, side-exit sensor with a +10 per cent sensitivity tolerance.

The accelerometers have M8, M6 and 1/4-28 mounting options.

They are suited to industrial-machinery health monitoring of rotating equipment, such as motors, pumps, fans, compressors, vibrating conveyors, chillers, gearboxes, reciprocating compressors, blowers, cooling towers, mixers, turbines and centrifuges.

Meggitt has also added several compatible cable assemblies, including what it claims are the highest temperature M12 connector-cable assemblies for accelerometers on the market.

The high-temperature connector-cable assemblies are IP67-rated, suitable for environments up to 125C (257F) and available with Teflon or industrial-grade jacketed cable.

Meggitt’s moulded connector-cable assemblies are IP68-rated and suitable for environments up to 90C (194F).

All M12 cable assemblies have a braided shield for signal integrity.

The connector-cable assemblies have five sockets and are compatible with four- and five-pin M12 sensor connectors.

Meggitt offers a selection of other connector options or wire terminations on these cable assemblies.
