ThetaShear Accelerometer
Type 4507 and 4508 are ideal for modal analysis applications involving lightweight structures, where their low weight of 4.8 grams helps to reduce mass loading
The high-quality accelerometer products from Brüel & Kjær includes two new uni-axial accelerometers. Type 4507 and 4508 are ideal for modal analysis applications involving lightweight structures, where their low weight of 4.8 grams helps to reduce mass loading. They have a rugged titanium construction, and, like OrthoShear accelerometers, a high sensitivity of 100 mV/g. A high dynamic range of more than 100dB also means low noise. And because of their ThetaShear® design, they offer a high transverse resonance frequency.

The only difference between the two ThetaShear designs is that Type 4507 is side mounted, while Type 4508 is top mounted. Mounting clips are available for both types — helping to reduce the set-up time for modal analysis.
