Expressly designed for use in Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS), the Dytran model 3079A is an IEPE piezoelectric accelerometer, featuring a sensitivity of 10 mV/g with a frequency response of 1.1 to 3,000 Hz, packaged in a highly rugged stainless steel housing weighing 11 grams.

The distinguishing feature of model 3079A is the Dytran developed integral mounting bracket design, facilitating improved sensor performance while eliminating costs associated with separate mounting brackets. The miniature accelerometer is mounted within the bracket at the point where the cable and bracket are joined. This unique design also offers reduced mass, as compared to conventional sensors and mounting brackets. Model 3079A is hermetically sealed for reliable operation within high humidity and dirty environments, as well as case isolated to avoid EMI/ground loop interference.
