Sensor selection - other specialized models

Following are the top features required of other specialized vibration sensor models for different applications.

Gas turbine applications:
  • Velocity sensor, direct measurement
  • Moving coil type
  • High temperature, 375 °C (710 °F)

  • CMSS 85 (fig 1)

Machine tools applications:
  • Wide frequency response (0,3 Hz to 10 kHz) for spindles
  • Special shape for integral mounting
  • Good signal-to-noise ratio

Underwater usage applications:
  • Use sensors with integral cable
  • All MIL connector sensors use IP 68 connector/cable with locking collar and assembled with silicone grease to exclude air from joint
