Abstract : The acceletron, or electronic acceleration transducer, is an electronic tube with a mobile electrode. Hot, directly-heated oxide cathode K, suspended on a flat spring, is situated between two flat parallel electrodes (anode A and cold cathode CK). The acceletron is placed directly on the object whose acceleration is to be measured, its body being firmly attached to the object. The measuring axis X-X of the acceleratron must be so oriented as to be parallel or coincide with the axis of the object along which acceleration is to be measured. (Author)
