The Dytran model 5800SL is a compact, lightweight version of the 5800B series IEPE impulse hammer, offering an ultra low mass of 9.8 grams and very high stiffness.

With a measurement range of 50 lbf, the Dytran model 5800SL has a head weight of just 2 grams and is supplied with a brass head extender. Electrical connection is achieved via a 10-32 jack located at the end of the hammer handle. Design of the model 5800SL incorporates an ultra miniature quartz force sensor built into the impact hammer tip, coupled with an onboard miniature IC amplifier. The reduced size and weight of the hammer head and handle further reduce overall hammer inertia for quicker rebounding. This produces a very high frequency excitation, allowing the user to excite smaller structures with high frequency content and input forcing function.

Supplied Accessories: (1) model 6278 brass head extender
