PCB® launches New High Temperature Charge Accelerometer with UHT-12™ Element

Designed for Gas Turbine Applications and Other 900 °F (482 °C) Environments

PCB Piezotronics announced the release of Model 357A100, a new high temperature differential charge accelerometer with a UHT-12™ sensing element. This accelerometer is for use during gas turbine engine research and testing and has industry standard 3-hole mount. This new model features a well-balanced, differential output that is isolated from case ground to reduce electrical noise found near airplane and helicopter gas turbine engines. Its charge output is self-generating and does not require an external power source.

The new UHT-12™ crystal technology features:
Absence of pyroelectric noise spikes up to 900 °F (482 °C).
Sensitivity that remains more consistent over a wide temperature change.
Shear mode crystals isolated from base strain and transverse measurement errors.
No depletion of oxygen at high temperatures, eliminating the need for a vent or window in the housing.

PCB® offers a family of ultra high temperature accelerometers and pressure sensors for aerospace propulsion. These sensors are ideal for gas turbine engine research and monitoring.
