Dytran Model 3316C2 is an electrically isolated ultra high temperature piezoelectric charge mode accelerometer designed to operate reliably in temperatures up to +1000°F. This workhorse accelerometer is characterized by its small size and by an internal electrical isolation design that eliminates the need for an additional isolated mounting block to prevent ground loop interference. 

A unique, single-crystal, planar shear charge mode sensing element mounted in a miniature hermetically sealed Inconel™ housing enables Model 3316C2 to operate at extremely high temperatures over long periods of time.  Model 3316C2 employs Silver Window ™ technology, a Dytran patented feature. A "silver window" on the top cover of the accelerometer housing allows a diffused oxygen molecule to pass through at high temperatures, replenishing oxygen to the crystal while maintaining the hermetic seal integrity.  This innovative feature assures continued high temperature operation with no loss of insulation resistance due to oxygen deprivation.

The Dytran model 3316C2 weighs 13 grams and has a height of just 0.49 inches (12.5  millimeters), making it ideal for use in tight locations that are inaccessible to larger accelerometers. The calibrated sensitivity (exact sensitivity is provided on the calibration certificate supplied with each sensor) is between 1 and 2 pC/g and the upper frequency response is 5kHz (+/- 10%). Model 3316C2 has a 10-32 tapped hole and 10-32 radial connector.
