Ground Motion/Vibration Sensors/broadband seismometers

Manufacturer: Sensors UK Limited
Model: Accelerometers And Inclinomete-BDK3-10m@#392ea

Accelerometers of high overload resistance with integrated electronics for dynamic measurement of vibration and acceleration in the frequency. The dynamic accelerometers BDK3, BDK10, and BDK100 are capacitive spring-mass accelerometers with integrated sensor electronics. Resonant peaks are minimized by dynamic gas damping in the primary transformer. The sensor electronics require only minimal power and are in conjunction with the capacitive primary transformer characterized by low error and high long-term stability.
