MOTION CONTROL: PCB Piezotronics Inc. announced Model 352B70, the newest sensor in the family of accelerometers designed for extreme testing found only in shaker labs.
PCB has worked closely with shaker labs around the world developing accelerometers specifically designed to withstand this demanding application. PCB Model 352B70 has a ± 5000g measurement range to accommodate the varying amplitudes experienced during high random vibration test profiles; a built-in 2 pole low pass filter to help reduce the possibility of saturation due to the presence of high frequency energy that may be present above your frequency band of interest; and is hermetically sealed in a titanium housing to ensure survivability in harsh environments. The robust sensor is also electrically isolated to prevent unwanted electrical interference or ground loops, and has a low mass design weighing in at only 4.3 grams. Supplied with mounting studs and an adhesive base allows for a variety of mounting capabilities.
PCB Piezotronics, Inc. is a global leader in the design and manufacture of force, torque, load, strain, pressure, acoustic and vibration sensors, as well as the pioneer of ICP® technology. This instrumentation is used for test, measurement, monitoring, and feedback control requirements in automotive, aerospace, industrial, R&D, military, educational, commercial, and OEM applications.
