Unique Capabilities
  • Calibration
    • Dytran provides NIST traceable calibrations for almost all single axis piezoelectric type accelerometers.
    • Dytran calibrations are performed in accordance with MIL-STD-45662A, ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994, ISO 10012-1.
    • Our calibration services also include the calibration of piezoelectric type load cells, pressure transducers and impulse hammers.
    • The service department must issue a Returned Material Authorization (RMA) number before equipment can be received into the Dytran facility for repair / re-calibration.
    • Our service department also offers "no charge" evaluations of any piezoelectric type instrumentation
  • Repair
    • Dytran will attempt to repair any Dytran manufactured sensor within a two year period from the date of manufacture.
    • We will first evaluate the unit then recommend an appropriate course of action. No work will be completed until the customer is notified of all monetary charges related to the repair / calibration.
    • We also have the capability to repair most coaxial cables with the popular 10-32 microdot or 5-44 connectors.
Products / Lines Carried
  • Accelerometers: Dytran manufactures a broad range of accelerometers serving industries such as Aerospace, Automotive, Medical, Laboratory, Commercial and Industrial. Our accelerometer product range covers miniature to seismic as well as a full range of triaxial accelerometers
  • Accesories: includes mounting bases, mounting wax, adapter studs, magnetic mounting bases and triaxial mounting blocks to name a few
  • Cables: Choose from “standard” 10-32 type, coaxial connectors or ultra miniature cables with 3-56 threaded plugs. Standard offerings include 10-32 to 10-32 and 10-32 to BNC combinations with regular RG196 or low noise RG196 coaxial cable
  • Electronics: Choose from a wide range of line powered and battery operated signal conditioners to power your piezoelectric sensors. Standard conditioners include 18-30VDC power supplies at two to twenty milliamps of constant current (IEPE). Many options are available including multi channel, DC powered, gain and filtering. The product line also includes a vast selection of in-line charge amplifiers.
  • Force Sensors: Dynamic force sensors are ideal for driving point measurements in modal analysis applications as well as many other dynamic force applications that requires ultra fast rise time and high natural frequency.
  • Impedance Heads: Measure mechanical impedance with a simultaneous measurement of force and acceleration. Ideal for modal analysis driving point measurements. High sensitivity and great low frequency response, combined with high natural frequency make this a valuable tool for use in modal analysis applications
  • Impulse Hammer Systems: Dytran impulse hammer systems include impulse hammers, accelerometers, current source power units and accessories all in one easy to manage kit (including carrying case). Stay organized in the field with impulse hammer systems
  • Impulse Hammers: Easily input broadband energy into a structure for your modal analysis requirements
  • Pressure Sensors: Dytran pressure sensors measure dynamic pressure in diverse applications from air bag deployment analysis to pyrotechnic applications. Ideal for fast rise time, wide dynamic range and rugged applications
