OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
ACC141 SERIES ACCELEROMETER
GENERAL INFORMATION
Your Omega accelerometer has been carefully calibrated before shipment to you, and it should be
handled with the same care given any precision instrument. Omega accelerometers are rugged devices, built to take considerable overrange of “G” loads.
Please refer to the ACC141 calibration data before proceeding further.

CAUTION: Be absolutely sure of excitation power polarity before applying power, reserved
excitation will burn out the circuit instantly.

ACC141A MUST NOT BE OPERATED WITH EXCITATION EXCEEDING 15 VDC.
ACC141A accelerometer excitation voltage 5 VDC to 15 VDC. Keep excitation power between 5 VDC
min. and 15 VDC maximum. High voltage may burn out the circuit. Installation of a protective Zener
diode such as a IN4746A across the excitation power input leads is a good practice, taking care to orient the diode correctly. This Zener diode protects the transducer circuit against high voltage transients
and against inadvertent application of excess voltages or reversed voltage. Note that the Zener diode
normally conducts up to 200 milliamperes satisfactorily but that excessive current drain will cause the
Zener diode to short-circuit internally, hopefully protecting the transducer from damage. Should this
happen, the Zener diode must of course be replaced before further use of the transducer.
ACC141B MUST NOT BE OPERATED WITH EXCITATION VOLTAGE EXCEEDING 28 VDC.
ACC141B accelerometer excitation power 10 VDC minimum and 28 VDC maximum. High voltage
may burn out the circuit. Installation of a protective Zener diode such as IN4752 across the excitation power input leads is a good practice, taking care to orient the diode correctly. This Zener diode
protects the transducer circuit against high voltage transients and against inadvertent application of
excess voltages or reversed voltage. Note that the Zener diode normally conducts up to 30 milliamperes satisfactorily but that excessive current drain will cause the Zener diode to short-circuit internally, hopefully protecting the transducer from damage. Should this happen, the Zener diode must of
course be replaced before further use of the transducer.
CALIBRATION SIGNAL
Select an external RCAL and shunt the red lead through RCAL to the brown lead (-signal output). An
RCAL value is shown on the calibration certificate. Less conductive resistors produce a nearly proportional decrease in calibration signal. Higher conductivity resistors produce a similarly proportional
increase in calibration signal.
THE CALIBRATED OUTPUT OF YOUR ACCELEROMETER
Your accelerometer was factory-calibrated on a centrifuge at a precise excitation voltage reported on
the calibration certificate. The accelerometer output voltage was measured into open circuit (10 megohms). The output impedance of the ACC141 accelerometer is 9K ohms (nominal). Loading effect on
the output does not appreciably change the linearity or thermal behavior of the transducer. The output into heavy loads may be calculated by assuming simple voltage divider action. The sensitivity is
approximately proportional to the excitation voltage.

RETURNING PRODUCTS FOR REPAIR
Please contact Omega at 1-800-826-6342 or 1-203-359-1660 before returning unit for repair to review
information relative to your application. Many times, only minor field adjustments may be necessary.
When returning a product to Omega, the material should be carefully packaged and shipped prepaid
to:
Omega Engineering, Inc
One Omega Drive
P.O. Box 4047
Stamford, CT 06907-0047
To assure prompt handling, please supply the following information and include it inside the package
of returned material:
1. Name and phone number of person to contact.
2. Shipping and billing instruction.
3. Full description of the malfunction.
4. Identify any hazardous material used with product.
Notes: Please remove any pressure fittings and plumbing that you have installed and enclose any required mating electrical connectors and wiring diagrams. Allow approximately 3 weeks after receipt at
Omega for the repair and return of the unit. Non-warranty repairs will not be made without customer
approval and a purchase order to cover the repair charges.
Calibration Services
Omega maintains a complete calibration facility that is traceable to the National Institute of Standards
& Technology (NIST). If you would like to recalibrate or re-certify your Omega pressure transducers or
transmitters, please call our Sales Department at 1-800-826-6342 or 1-203-359-1660 for scheduling,
cost and turnaround estimates.
Thank you,
