Side-Exit Accelerometer Includes Built-In Temperature Sensor

Meggitt Sensing Systems has launched a side-exit, low-profile, dual-output accelerometer with a built-in temperature sensor. The 787T is the side-exit version of Wilcoxon Research’s  786T top exit, combined output, temperature and vibration general purpose sensor.

The side-exit 787T has the capability of monitoring in low-clearance areas and can accommodate cable runs from any angle with the inclusion of a 1/4-28 or M6 captive screw. Designed with a standard 3-pin MIL-C-5015 connector, the 787T is compatible with cabling infrastructure found in most industrial locations.

When used with vibration-based field data collectors, the data collector powers both the vibration and temperature sensors simultaneously.

The 787T is suitable for harsh industrial environments and route-based or permanent-mount applications. The temperature sensor provides a 10 mV/°C signal for tracking sensor mounting location temperatures from 2 to 120° C.
