Dynamic Pressure Sensor Calibration Systems

Calibrate Dynamic Pressure Sensors

Dynamic pressure sensors are typically calibrated by varying the amplitude rather than the frequency of the input. To service the wide range of pressure events measured by dynamic pressure sensors, The Modal Shop offers systems that calibrate sensors designed for atmospheric blast experiments, gas turbine exhaust fluctuations, internal combustion engine measurements, ammunition brass calibrations, and hydraulic or fuel line measurements. These systems have been proven in tens of thousands of factory calibrations performed at PCB Piezotronics, and this rich metrology heritage is leveraged with a digital hardware and software platform that is shared with the Precision Sensor Calibration Workstation Model 9155D.

In addition, a variety of Dynamic Pressure Systems are offered as modular options to expand the 9155D System to include dynamic pressure.
