Accelerometers with M12 Connectors

The M12 connectors on Meggitt's accelerometers  make it easy to implement vibration monitoring.

Meggitt Sensing Systems, the makers of Wilcoxon Research vibration sensors and sensor networks, has added three new accelerometers with M12 connectors to its product line. The M12 connector:

  • Is compatible with the existing infrastructure and stock of cables and connectors, making it easy to implement the accelerometer for vibration monitoring.
  • Has several compatible connector-cable assemblies.

The M12-style accelerometers:

  • Are 100 mV/g general purpose vibration sensors.
  • Have excellent sensitivity tolerance and an acceleration range of 80g.
  • Are hermetically sealed using a fused glass to metal connector and all welded construction, and are rated for operation in environments up to 120° C.
  • Come in three models: The 786A-M12 top-exit sensor with ±5 percent sensitivity tolerance; the 787AM8-M12 low-profile, side-exit sensor, also with ±5 percent sensitivity tolerance; the 787BM8-M12 low-profile, side-exit sensor with ±10 percent sensitivity tolerance.
  • Have M8, M6, and 1/4-28 mounting options.
