Meggitt Sensing Systems has announced the expanded availability of the Endevco 12M series, a family of compact, high-sensitivity surface mount piezoelectric accelerometers with no external power requirements. They are designed for implantable OEM medical device and equipment applications.
Weighing 120 mg and operating in temperatures of up to +150°C, the Endevco model 12M series features the incorporation of Meggitt’s own Piezite-type P-8 bimorph sensing element, operating in bender mode. This material offers low base strain sensitivity, low pyroelectric output and extremely high charge output versus size, according to the company.
Models within the Endevco 12M series can be incorporated into implantable medical device designs to support applications such as patient activity indicators, cardiac pacemaker and defibrillator rate response, implanted pain management device monitoring, blood pressure monitoring, blood glucose monitoring, artificial joint pressure measurements and external and implanted drug therapy systems.
