A trio of triaxial products by Meggitt include Wilcoxon triaxial sensors, cables and connection boxes for permanent and hand held vibration monitoring applications. The model 993B-M12 triaxial accelerometer boasts a versatile M12 connector and an upgraded external case resulting in a thicker shell for better resistance impact. For both route based and permanent mount applications, it hosts three 100 mV/g vibration sensors with ± 10% sensitivity tolerance. For permanent mounting applications, a captive mounting screw allows the sensor to be mounted in the most convenient direction for cable placement. Released in conjunction with the sensor are a multitude of cable options that cover a broad range of applications. Straight, coiled, and Teflon coated options are available terminated in a variety of industry standard connectors such as BNC, Turck, Fischer (6 or 11 pin) or Bendix. The removable and replaceable cables allow users to choose the alternative to connect or isolate the shield and the sensor housing. The sensor's frequency range is from 2 to 10,000 Hz on the Z-axis and 2 to 7,000 Hz on the X and Y axes. Improved individual channel amplifiers of the accelerometer work to reduce the influence of out of band signals, thereby minimizing sensor overload, a condition which renders sensor data unusable. Additionally designed enhancements have increased each channels’ dynamic range by 20 g. Users of Wilcoxon triaxial sensors note the increased speed of data collection and inherently consistent outputs since all data is collected simultaneously by matching triaxial data collection systems. The accelerometer follows the hermetically sealed, ESD protected and EMI/RFI shielded format. Reverse wire protection comes standard, to protect the internal circuit from failure, should the input power be misconnected. The IP67 rated M12 connectors can be mated with J9T4A family of Teflon coated cable assemblies or the straight or coiled J84 Kevlar reinforced cable. Rated at IP65, the CBT2 cable boxes, for permanent mounting applications, are an easy plug and play solution for M12 to M12 connections. Wilcoxon triaxial cable and connector options offer robust protection in permanent mount applications for harsh environments. Advanced potting and soldering techniques complement ruggedized Kevlar reinforced cables capable of pull strengths up to 45kg. Two length options are offered for the coiled version, ideal for portable data collection. The use of M12 connectors on the outside of the box simplifies field installation. Prewiring the connections eliminates the danger of crosswiring sensor signals and greatly reduces installation times.
