Meggitt Sensing Systems’ Endevco model 6222S series is a high-temperature piezoelectric accelerometer family of accelerometers, designed for vibration monitoring in helicopter health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS), ground and onboard aircraft engine monitoring, and ground-based gas turbine engine monitoring applications.
The series is available in three models, with sensitivities of 20, 50 and 100 pC/g and choice of three connector styles. Models feature Meggitt’s Isoshear construction, which is designed to reduce transient temperature and base strain outputs, while maintaining a high mounted resonance and continuous operation in temperatures of up to +500°F with long mean time before failure (MTBF). The Endevco model 6222S series comes with a standard ARINC three-point mounting configuration, three mounting bolts, and is designed with a two-pin 7/16-27 UNS-2A threaded receptacle with an available three-pin option. As a self-generating device, the sensors require no external power for operation.
The Endevco model 6222S series provides a balanced differential output, allowing them to be used with any industry differential charge amplifier. This unit is designed to be compatible with the Endevco 6917B and 6917D series of shielded, softline cable assemblies.
