PCB Piezotronics - PRODUCT NEWS



PCB Piezotronics, a world leader in vibration, acoustic, pressure, force and torque sensors, has announced a significant reduction in pricing for three of its most popular microphone products following improvements in its manufacturing processes that have led to an increased product yield.

At the same time, the company has published an independent comparison of one of these products with products from three other manufacturers and is also offering a Microphone Handbook.

The company's models 378B02, 377B02 and 130E20 are available with the same high quality as always but now at more competitive pricing than ever following improvements in the manufacturing process. Designed for product testing in anechoic chambers or environmental testing, model 378B02 - a ½ inch pre-polarised free-field condenser microphone and ICP® preamplifier - is now available for £610.00. Model 377B02 - available for £445.00 - is a ½ inch free-field, polarised condenser microphone cartridge that can be paired with any IEC compliant preamplifier. Available for just £189.00, model 130E20 is a ¼ inch ICP® Array microphone with integral preamplifier designed for use in various applications including acoustic holography, beam forming and general purpose audible range test applications.

Offering the same high quality and market leading warranty, PCB Piezotronics three microphones are also available through the company's "On Your Desk Within 5 Days" programme.

The company has also published independent research from government owned internationally accredited test house SP Technical Research Institute in Sweden that made a side-by-side comparison of ½ inch free-field microphones from PCB, B&K, G.R.A.S. and BSWA. The tests compared PCB's 378B02 against its competitors over a number of critical areas to determine if the microphones met both the IEC standards and the vendors' published specifications. The areas tested included sensitivity, dynamic range, frequency range, temperature coefficient, humidity coefficient and stability among others.

Graham Turgoose, managing director PCB Piezotronics Ltd, commented, "In the past few months we have taken several steps to position ourselves for rapid growth in the acoustic test and measurement market including the formation of a dedicated microphone team, introduction of new products, aggressive worldwide pricing and now third party test data validating our product's quality and performance."

He continued, "Combining these with our best-in-class delivery & support and market leading warranty, we feel there is no reason why PCB should be anything other than the microphone vendor of choice."
