The Model 8011 and Model 8012 are hermetically sealed and operate in temperatures from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C, making them ideal for use in a number of general purpose industrial applications such as monitoring of motors, pumps, compressors or any type of rotating machinery.  The Model 8011 comes with a top exit 2-pin MIL-C-5015 connector and the Model 8012 features an integral cable for installation flexibility.  

Constructed for reliable performance, the 801X series includes internal shielding and reverse wiring protection. The units also incorporate annular shear mode crystals for stable long term operation.

The new accelerometers offer a <5% transverse sensitivity and a frequency response from 10 Hz to 5,000 Hz (600 cpm to 30,000 cpm).  Each unit can withstand shock up to 5,000 g. 

Technical Specifications

  • 4 mA to 20mA loop power
  • True RMS or Peak output options
  • -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C operating range
  • +/-5 g to +/-50 g dynamic range with less than 5% transverse sensitivity
  • 10 Hz to 5,000 Hz bandwidth

Pricing and delivery for the new 801X Accelerometer is dependent upon quantity ordered.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
With the proliferation of both SQL and NoSQL databases, organizations can now target specific fit-for-purpose database tools for their different application needs regarding scalability, ease of use, ACID support, etc. Platform as a Service offerings make this even easier now, enabling developers to roll out their own database infrastructure in minutes with minimal management overhead. However, this same amount of flexibility also comes with the challenges of picking the right tool, on the right ...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people.
