Wilcoxon Sensing Technologies, an Amphenol company, has released the LVEP050-TO5 ultra-low power accelerometer designed to be embedded into wireless vibration sensors and other battery-powered vibration measurement applications.
The compact sensor can also be embedded into motors, pumps, fans, and other production assets, to incorporate vibration monitoring built-in self-test (BIST) capabilities into common wearable machine components.
The TO-5 package is commonly used in embedded applications for its simplicity. The sensor is lightweight to preserve usable measurement bandwidth and hermetically sealed to ensure stable measurements over a long operational lifetime. The TO-5 housing provides rigid vibration coupling from the canister base into the vibration pellet, which is essential to effective machinery health monitoring in both wireless vibration monitoring and BIST applications. Because of the small size, the sensor is suitable for both single-axis or triaxial designs.
