  • PCB PIEZOTRONICS, inc. COMPLETES CONSTRUCTION OF $1 MILLION CLEAN ROOM FACILITY

    A LEADING GLOBAL SENSOR SUPPLIER AND ONE OF WNY'S LARGEST MANUFACTURERS INVESTS IN STATE-OF-THE-ART PRESSURE ASSEMBLY

     

    December, 2019, DEPEW, NY – PCB Piezotronics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MTS Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: MTSC), announced the completion of new environmentally controlled clean rooms totaling 4,300 sq. ft. at their Walden Avenue headquarters. Earlier this year, the sensor manufacturer began assembly of all pressure and force products in this new state-of-the-art facility.

    Sensor elements and other critical assemblies are manufactured within a 1,200 sq. ft. room, which meets or exceeds ISO Class 7 cleanliness standard (less than 10,000 particles per cubic foot). This room is also humidity controlled within a tight specification. Particle counts are further reduced down to ISO Class 3-4 levels (less than 10 particles / cubic foot) due to usage of laminar flow benches, High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtered fume extractors and other state of the art clean room equipment.

    A second clean room area (3,100 sq. ft.) is designated for final product assembly and calibration processes. This space is under even stricter humidity controls to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage to electrical components. Laminar flow benches for critical product assembly, and solder stations with HEPA filtered fume extractors are used throughout this space.

    PCB expects that the environmentally controlled clean rooms will further enhance their pressure and force sensor manufacturing and assembly processes. Higher efficiencies, increased throughput, and improved quality and delivery are just some of the expected benefits. PCB Design Engineers are already working on the next generation of high performance sensors, whose design and manufacturing is dependent upon a clean room environment.

    “We are very proud of this new state-of-the-art facility and our continuous improvement initiatives to provide higher performing, quality sensor products to meet the demands of our valued customers” said David T. Hore, President of PCB Piezotronics. “This large investment in a world-class manufacturing environment reinforces PCB’s commitment to Total Customer Satisfaction, which is our company’s long-standing mission.”

    LAUNCHES DIFFERENTIAL CHARGE AMPLIFIER PRODUCT LINE

    IDEAL FOR USE WITH CHARGE MODE SENSORS IN POWER GENERATION APPLICATIONS

     

    November 8, 2019, DEPEW, NY – PCB Piezotronics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MTS Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: MTSC), announced the release of Models 421B30, 421B31 and 421B3X, differential charge amplifiers designed for use with differential, charge mode accelerometers and pressure sensors. The products were developed for use in power generation turbine research & development and rotating asset monitoring in nuclear facilities.

    The product features:

    • Variety of input sensitivities allows pairing with charge-mode accelerometers and pressure sensors.
    • Ability to convert from an input sensitivity in one engineering unit to an output signal in a different engineering unit.
    • Voltage (mV) and current (μA) outputs for flexibility in applications with long signal transmission distance requirements.
    • Configurable high-pass and low-pass filters allow for application-specific frequency response.

  • PCB PIEZOTRONICS, INC. LAUNCHES NEW LINE OF INTRINSICALLY SAFE, EXTREME TEMPERATURE CHARGE ACCELEROMETERS

    DESIGNED WITH UHT-12 ELEMENT FOR ENERGY AND AEROSPACE & DEFENSE HIGH-TEMPERATURE ENVIRONMENTS

     

    September 23, 2019 Depew, NY – PCB Piezotronics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MTS Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: MTSC), announced the release of six new intrinsically safe (ATEX/CSA/IECEx), extreme temperature charge accelerometers with a UHT-12 sensing element. These products have been developed for use in aviation/power generation turbine research & development and monitoring applications.

    Intrinsically Safe, Extreme Temperature Charge Accelerometer
    • Model EX357E90: 2.3 pC/g, single-ended output, axis of measurement parallel to the direction of the mounting screw
    • Model EX357E91: 2.3 pC/g, single-ended output, axis of measurement perpendicular to the direction of the mounting screw
    • Model EX357E92: 5.0 pC/g, single-ended output, axis of measurement parallel to the direction of the mounting screw
    • Model EX357E93: 5.0 pC/g, single-ended output, axis of measurement perpendicular to the direction of the mounting screw
    • Model EX357A94: 3.3 pC/g, differential output, axis of measurement parallel to the direction of the mounting screw
    • Model EX357A95: 3.3 pC/g, differential output, axis of measurement perpendicular to the direction of the mounting screw

    Key features of the new extreme temperature charge accelerometers:

    • 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 mchristman@pcb.com or 716-684-0003 x2071.
