Meggitt Sensing Systems' Endevco model
3090C-XXX is a premium, low-noise softline cable assembly, designed for
reliable low and high-temperature operation from -254 to +260°C. The
cable assembly is designed for compatibility with both high- and
low-impedance Endevco piezoelectric accelerometers, and other industry
models, in support of a variety of general purpose aerospace,
automotive, industrial and test and measurement applications.
One of the most commonly overlooked components of an electronic
measurement system is the selection of a proper cable assembly to
support accurate data transfer between accelerometer and signal
conditioner. While engineers spend much time choosing the "right"
accelerometer, signal conditioner or data acquisition system, the cable
is often an afterthought. And yet, it is widely regarded that no other
single component within a measurement system has a more significant
influence on the success of a test than the cable itself. The effects of
poor cable performance can be devastating to any test setup, in terms
of corrupted and unreliable data, costly measurement errors and
unforeseen project delays. Recognizing the importance of
high-reliability cabling for successful test setups, Meggitt has
invested in the development of its own proprietary cable construction
methods, all of which are 100% tested for best performance.
The Endevco model 3090C-XXX (where XXX refers to cable length in
inches) 10-32 to 10-32 cable assembly features Meggitt's own proprietary
welded center pin design for optimal mechanical and electrical joint
strength, with reduced susceptibility to pin pullout. The assembly also
incorporates a fused Teflon jacket for ruggedness and repeated usage, in
applications where cable abrasion is anticipated. The cable is also
specially treated to guarantee low-noise characteristics and to further
reduce the effects of triboelectric noise on signal transmission
quality. Incorporating stainless steel connectors (center-pin fused into
glass insulator, 10-32 threaded nut); a stranded-wire center connector
for maximum flexibility; and high cable pullout tensile strength for
increased ruggedness and longevity, the cable is also well-suited for high-humidity, high-temperature conditions.
All Endevco cables are backed by a five-year comprehensive product
warranty, with quantities of the model 3090C-XXX available for immediate
customer shipment under Meggitt's Endevco Guaranteed in Stock program.
