PCB Piezotronics to Host May 2007 Seminar

Jan. 11, 2007
This three-day seminar, "The Successful Measurement of Dynamic Force, Pressure and Acceleration," will be geld May 15-17 outside Buffalo, NY.

The participants will learn to:

  • understand the physics and operating characteristics of dynamic pressure, and acceleration transducers and constraints associated with their use;
  • Interface transducers effectively within intended test environments;
  • Condition transducer signals to maintain their fidelity through selection of appropriate cabling, amplifiers, analog filters, sampling rates, DAQs, etc.;
  • Document extraneous measurands (strain, temperature, ionization products of a detonation, magnetic fields, etc.) that superpose as noise on the desired transducer response;
  • Apply corrective action for elimination of these noise levels;
  • Validate that final, recorded signals contain only the desired (force, pressure, or acceleration) data;
  • Perform "back of the envelope" checks to assure the bandwidth of the recording system did not impose constraints on recorded data;
  • Perform sensor and system calibration, data analysis, and data utilization.

The cost is $595 USD per person and includes seminar materials, meals, and entertainment. Class size is limited to the first 40 paid registrants.
