Rion Accelerometers

Rion Accelerometers

Rion Accelerometers have an enviable reputation for accuracy and longevity. Rion manufacture a wide range of accelerometers including a reference standard accelerometer (the PV-03), a tri-axial high sensitivity low frequency ground accelerometer (PV-83CW for use with the Rion VM-54), a triaxial seat accelerometer (PV-62), a tiny (mass 4.7g) tri-axial transducer for hand-arm vibration and single axis accelerometers ranging from the PV-08 (mass 0.7g with a charge sensitivity of 0.1pC/ms-2) to the PV-87 (charge sensitivity of 41 pC/ms-2 with a mass of 115g).

Information on selected accelerometers is given below. For information on the full range of Rion Accelerometers download the Full Specification PDF.
