PV102 piezoelectric velocity sensor

100 mV/in/s, −50 to 120 °C, up to 5000 Hz.

The PV102 piezoelectric velocity sensor is a high-quality, high-reliability vibration sensor with a piezoelectric sensing element and integrated electronics with integrator that provides an industry standard voltage output of 100 mV/in/s.

The PV102 is designed and built for use in harsh environments characterised by hazardous areas (potentially explosive atmospheres).

  • Designed for the measurement of vibration in harsh environments, such as motors, pumps and fans (general industrial machinery)
  • Medium frequency response: up to 5000 Hz
  • Industry standard sensitivity: 100 mV/in/s
  • Low-noise electronics and exceptional bias-voltage stability at higher temperatures
  • Certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres
