PCB has two shock accelerometer designs that are contributing to the improved measurement of both high-g and pyrotechnic shock. Piezoresistive shock accelerometers measure transient motion down to DC and respond to extremely fast rise times typical of a high-g shock event. Manufactured by MEMS technology, they have low power consumption. Piezoelectric ICP® accelerometers afford a very high signal output (+/- 5 volts full scale) and the ease of two-wire electrical connectivity. Their inherent ruggedness enables them to be severely over ranged without damage.

Specially designed piezoelectric and piezoresistive pressure sensors are used for a wide range of explosion, blast, and shock wave tests. The frequency ranges are tailored to capture peak pressure and total impulse measurements, while the sensors test air-blast pressure in free-field or closed bunker arenas. Measure peak pressure, total impulse, shock wave, and time-of-arrival, or study blast effects on structures, vehicles, and other objects. Various housing options or OEM configurations are available.
