PCB Piezotronics, Inc. Launches New Line of Intrinsically Safe, Extreme Temperature Charge Accelerometers

Designed with UHT-12 Element for Energy and Aerospace & Defense High-Temperature Environments

September 20, 2019 DEPEW, NY – PCB Piezotronics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MTS Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: MTSC), announced the release of six new intrinsically safe (ATEX/CSA/IECEx), extreme temperature charge accelerometers with a UHT-12 sensing element.  These products have been developed for use in aviation/power generation turbine research & development  and monitoring applications.

  • Model EX357E90: 2.3 pC/g, single-ended output, axis of measurement parallel to the direction of the mounting screw
  • Model EX357E91: 2.3 pC/g, single-ended output, axis of measurement perpendicular to the direction of the mounting screw
  • Model EX357E92: 5.0 pC/g, single-ended output, axis of measurement parallel to the direction of the mounting screw
  • Model EX357E93: 5.0 pC/g, single-ended output, axis of measurement perpendicular to the direction of the mounting screw
  • Model EX357A94: 3.3 pC/g, differential output, axis of measurement parallel to the direction of the mounting screw
  • Model EX357A95: 3.3 pC/g, differential output, axis of measurement perpendicular to the direction of the mounting screw

Key features of the new extreme temperature charge accelerometers:

  • Proprietary crystal technology sealed in a hermetic package provides long-term reliability.
  • No pyroelectric output provides accurate low-frequency measurements.
  • Reduced thermal noise spikes eliminate false alarms during monitoring.
  • More consistent sensitivity over a wide temperature change provides greater accuracy.
  • Shear mode crystals prevent base strain and transverse measurement errors.

PCB Piezotronics, Inc. offers various charge amplifiers to support the launch of these new accelerometers, including Models 422M182 and EX682A40.  For all technical inquiries and application support, please contact Meredith Christman at mchristman@pcb.com or 716-684-0003 x2071.
