Now available 100,000 g Pyroshock Accelerometer - Solves the Ringing Problem in Shock Measurements

PCB Piezotronics, Inc., manufacturer of the industry's best-selling piezoelectric ICP® shock accelerometer family, introduces a new mechanically isolated, electrically filtered nearfield or farfield pyroshock sensor that is capable of measuring up to 100,000 g.

Model 350B01 is an ideal sensor to measure High-G shock and harsh pyroshock events such as found but not limited to metal-to-metal impact, explosive bolts, impact tools, and stage separation testing. This 100k g sensor completes PCB's Series 350 shock accelerometer product line, which includes ranges of 5000, 10000, and 50000 g.

Mechanical isolation aids in removing frequency content outside of the useful bandwidth of 20k Hz, and minimizes zero-shift associated with non-isolated accelerometers. Electrical filtering reduces signal ringing and clipping. The unit is hermetically sealed and case isolated for use in electrically noisy environments. Each pyroshock sensor is provided with a full scale Hopkinson bar calibration service at no extra charge, in accordance with MIL-STD-810G, Method 517, Change 1.

All piezoelectric ICP® shock accelerometer sensing elements are fabricated from our own unique mixture of piezo-ceramic materials in-house at PCB's ISO-9001 certified facility in the USA, where our vertically integrated manufacturing allows complete control of product quality.
