Pressure Transducers M60
Piezoelectric Transducers for High Frequency Measurements

The piezoelectric PVDF Pressure Gauge series M60 is the state of the art device for measuring high frequency pressure changes with rise times of only a few nanoseconds in gases and liquids. The transducer is based on piezoelectric pvdf. It is recommended for measuring blast waves or shock waves in shock tube experiments. The gauge is nearly free from vibrations. Beside M60-1L all sensor elements are protected by a thin elastic resin.
