PCB Piezotronics Inc. Launches Two Extreme Temperature, Differential Output, Charge Accelerometers

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

March 2, 2018 DEPEW, NY – PCB Piezotronics Inc., manufacturer of vibration and pressure monitoring instrumentation, announces the release of Models 357A94 and 357A95, two extreme temperature (1200 °F/ 649 °C), differential output, charge accelerometers with a UHT-12™ sensing element and integral hardline cable terminating in a 7/16-27 2-pin connector. Model 357A94 has an axis of measurement parallel to the direction of the mounting screw while Model 357A95 has an axis of measurement perpendicular to the direction of the mounting screw. These products have been developed for use in aviation/power generation turbine research & development applications.

    The new UHT-12™ crystal technology features:
  • 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 or 716-684-0003 x2071.
