PCB Piezotronics, Inc. Launches Subminiature ICP Pressure Sensor
Dynamic pressure measurement for the smallest spaces
PCB Piezotronics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MTS Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: MTSC), has released its smallest ICP piezoelectric, pressure sensor with integral lead wires. The Model 105C pressure sensor is as robust as PCB's larger sensors but compact enough to fit into small spaces or areas with tight clearances. The small size and stiffness of a quartz-sensing element yields a very high resonant frequency (> 250 kHz) for high quality measurements where other piezoelectric pressure sensors cannot fit or survive.
The overall length was reduced by 48% over models with connectors, allowing it to be installed into strategic locations where unsteady pressure fluctuations and cavitation occur. For example, around impellers, propellers, or fluid jets. Providing dynamic measurement from full vacuum to 100 psi (690 kPa), it also has applications in wind tunnels with proper thermal protection.
Additional suggested applications include:
- Ship propellers and control surfaces
- Airplane and spacecraft scale modelling
- Hydraulic and fluid media controls
Model 105C is available for immediate shipment. Visit www.pcb.com for additional information or contact Kevin Kolmetz, PCB Product Marketing Manager at (800) 828-8840 x2213 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
