BS ISO 5348. Mechanical vibration and shock. Mechanical mounting of accelerometers

Status : Current, Draft for public comment   Published : June 2019



This document describes important technical properties of the different methods for mounting of vibration transducers and describes recommended practices. Furthermore it shows examples concerning influences of the mounting of the accelerometer on the frequency response and other influences that could affect the fidelity of the representation of the actual motion of the structure being observed.

This document applies to the contacting type of accelerometers which are currently in wide use. It is applicable to both uniaxial and multi-axial transducers. This document also applies to velocity transducers.

With this document the user is enabled to estimate the limits of a mounting and consequently potential measurement deviations.

It should be noted that transducer mounting issues are not the only problem that can affect the validity of acceleration measurement. This includes, among others: transverse movements, alignment of the transducer, base bending, cable movement, temperature changes, electric and magnetic fields, cable whip, mounting torque, etc. However, issues other than mounting, and their possible effects are not dealt with in detail in this document.
