PCB PIEZOTRONICS INTRODUCES NEW SENSORS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS ON GAS TURBINES
Piezotronics, a world leader in vibration, acoustic, pressure, force and torque
sensors, has a wide range of innovative sensors and measurement systems for the
gas turbine market. The company’s latest offerings include high temperature
accelerometers and pressure sensors that provide crucial information to enable
diagnosis of potential problems, leading to an increase in turbine uptime and a
decrease in unplanned maintenance, failures and accidents.
in high temperature accelerometer technology for gas turbine monitoring have
led to the development of the new series 357D90, a charge output sensor that
enables vibration measurement in extreme heat environments up to 649°C. With
sensitivity of 5pC/g ±10%, measurement range of ±1000g peak and frequency range
of 2.5kHz, the 357D90 is ideal for use in the most demanding gas turbine
measurement and monitoring applications.
new accelerometer is housed in an Inconel welded hermetically sealed package
and features an integral hard-line 3m cable. Weighing just 50 grams without
cable, it features through-hole mounting and can interface directly with
handheld data collectors for both permanent and route based applications.
PCB Piezotronics, Inc. Introduces New High Temperature Acoustic Measurement System
Nominated for the 2009 International MessTec & Sensor Masters Award
PCB Automotive Sensors – a division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc., a world leader in vibration, acoustic, pressure, force, and torque sensors, is pleased to announce new Model HT378B02 ½ inch ICP® Low-Noise, High temperature Acoustic Measurement System.
PCB® Model HT378B02 is the world’s first IEC-compliant microphone and preamplifier system that is used by test engineers to measure sound amplitude (in Pascals or Decibels) and perform frequency analysis. This PCB® innovative breakthrough in technology allows this unit to be used to 120 °C operating temperatures, reducing the need for high-priced probe microphones; as well as to test to its maximum frequency specifications. This system is ideal for obtaining accurate measurements in and around a vehicle’s engine, manifold, underhood, exhaust pipe and other hot spots associated with powertrain and vehicle systems NVH testing.
PCB® Model HT378B02 has been nominated most innovative new sensor product for the MessTec & Sensor Masters 2009 Award.
