PCB’s new micro ICP Pressure Sensor, Model 132B38, is suited for wind tunnel applications that require very small test sensors and very high-frequency response. This improved design features a centered sensing element which improves accuracy of time of arrival, targeting, sniper/projectile detection systems, and aerodynamic testing in high-speed wind tunnels. Model 132B38 measures high-frequency pressure phenomena and can resolve short wavelength, dynamic pressure pulses.
This pressure sensor measures shock waves above 11 kHz and up to 1 MHz. With a measurement range of 50 psi and a resolution of 0.001 psi, it is sensitive enough to measure standing waves associated with boundary-layer transitions and the bow and stern of shock waves created by projectiles. The sensor features a stainless steel housing and a 10-foot integral cable that terminates in a 10-32 coaxial jack. This product is available for immediate shipment.
