Meggitt Sensing Systems introduces rugged accelerometer for pyroshock applications up to 240,000 g

Press Release ( - IRVINE, Calif. - Sep 20, 2017 - Meggitt Sensing Systems, a Meggitt division and leader in sensing and monitoring systems for extreme environments, has launched the Endevco model 7280AM7 piezoresistive accelerometer offering superior survivability for especially demanding blast test applications.

The 7280AM7 shares the performance characteristics of the 7280A family including light gas damping for exceptional survivability and minimal zero shift following a shock event. The ruggedized package is 25% larger than the 7280A, with a new cable selected for low noise and additional strain relief at the cable-to-case connection.
Key features include:

· 20,000 and 60,000g ranges

· Linearity to 1.5X full scale range extending the accurate measurement range

· Shock survivability to 4X full scale range enduring explosive events to 240,000 g

· Low power consumption

· Operating temperature -55 to +121C

The Endevco 7280AM7 incorporates the latest MEMS (Micro Electronic Mechanical Systems) technology ensuring the repeatability and reliability required for mission critical applications. Total quality control is implemented from the in-house fabrication facility to final test with our certified calibration systems.  The datasheet can be downloaded from
