High-Frequency Explosion, Blast, and Shock Wave Pressure Sensors



June 26, 2006, Depew, NY, USA - High-frequency sensors from the Pressure Division of PCB® Piezotronics, Inc. are designed for a broad range of explosion, blast, and shock wave testing. Applications include free-field and underwater blast testing, shock wave and time-of-arrival measurements, shock tube research, closed bomb testing, and squib lot acceptance testing.


General purpose ICP® and charge output blast sensors feature extremely fast response, with resonant frequencies to 500k Hz. ICP® microsensors provide rapid rise times of Ј 0.5 microseconds for projectile detection and time of arrival measurements. Free-field blast pressure ICP® pencil probes measure blast effects on structures, vehicles, and humans, and feature integral microelectronics for long cable driving. Underwater blast pressure probes measure shock wave pressures associated with underwater explosion testing, and are available in ICP® and charge output versions.
