Magnetic mounting offers the most convenient method of temporary sensor installation for route-based
measurements and data collection. IMI Sensors magnetic mounting bases feature rare-earth magnet elements
to achieve high attraction forces to the test structure. This aids in high frequency transmissibility and assures
attraction for weighty sensors and conditions of high vibration. Rail mount styles are utilized for curved surfaces,such as motor housings and pipes. Knurled housings aid in gripping for removal.
Exercise caution when installing magnetically mounted sensors by engaging the edge of the magnet with
the structure and carefully rolling the sensor/magnet assembly to an upright position. Never allow the magnet
to impact against the structure as this may create shock acceleration levels that saturate the sensor. When the
sensor is saturated users should wait a few seconds for the accelerometer to settle prior to taking data.
