Piezoelectric Accelerometer ENDEVCO MODEL 6237M70/ Model 6237M70/M71 • +1200°F (+650°C) Operation • Integral Hardline Cable • Single Bolt Mount • Ground Isolated • Gas Turbine Testing DESCRIPTION The ENDEVCO® Model 6237M70 and 6237M71 piezoelectric accelerometers are designed specifically for use in extremely high temperature environments
such as those experienced on aircraft gas turbines.
These accelerometers are designed for continuous
operation at +1200°F with long Mean Time
Between Failure (MTBF). The small size and light
weight of these accelerometers permit installation in
cramped locations with minimal structural support. The accelerometer is a self-generating device thatrequires no external power source for operation.
Models 6237M70/M71 incorporate ENDEVCO’s
PIEZITE® Type P-15 crystal in a shear design. The
6237M70 and 6237M71 differ in their internal
design and in the direction of the sensitive axis. The
6237M70 has its sensitive axis located in line withthe mounting screw, while the 6237M71 is orientedperpendicular, or transverse, to the mounting screw.
The sensing elements and integral shield are isolated
from the case. These accelerometers feature an
integral hardline cable with a standard length of 120
inches. Other cable lengths are also available on
ENDEVCO Signal Conditioner Model 2721B is
recommended for use with this high impedance

4. The electrical resistance of piezoelectric materials decreases with
an increase in temperature and can approach 10 000Ω at
5. For cable lengths of less than 12 inches (0.30 m), the maximum
operating temperature is +500°F (+260°C). The temperature
charge deviation at +500°F (+260°C) is typically +8%.

PHYSIOTHERAPY My New Body Pregnancy involves so many changes to a woman, both physiological and emotional. Everyone expects pregnancy to bring about an expanding waistline but many are surprised by the myriad of other changes to their body. Physical changes are good in that they help care for and nurture the growing foetus. That doesn’t of course mean that there aren’t some thi
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride, also commonly known as ‘vinyl’) is a rigid polymer, possibly most often seen in its ‘natural’ state used as w indow frames. In order to make PVC malleable, a variety of plasticisers are added and other processes are used during manufacture. In particular, this includes the addition of phthalates which provide flexibility, in order to mould and manufacture a wid
