January 24, 2007—PCB Piezotronics, Inc. introduces a new triaxial ICP accelerometer that installs between rider and vehicle seat, for ride comfort studies and human vibration exposure investigations.

According to the company’s press release, the Model 356B41 contains a precision, low profile, triaxial ICP accelerometer, which is mounted to a metal plate and screwed into a molded rubber pad. The sensor may be removed from the pad for calibration and verification purposes.

This mechanical configuration satisfies the requirements of ISO 10326-1. This sensor also supports whole body vibration studies, in accordance with ISO 2631 and ISO 8041 standards, and supports compliance with EU physical agents directives.

Model 356B41 has a sensitivity of 100 mV/g, frequency range of 0.5 to 1,000 Hz (+/-5%), and features a 5 ft. (1.5 m) integral cable and 4-pin terminating connector. The unit operates directly with readout and analysis equipment, which provide ICP sensor excitation, or with a separate ICP sensor signal conditioner.

The unit also operates directly with the Larson Davis Model HVM100 Human Vibration Meter, which supports whole-body and hand-arm vibration measurements.
