Mic listens for airbag deployment

The model 106M160 high-intensity piezoelectric pressure microphone is designed for measuring airbag deployment noise and total impulse of an inflation event inside an automobile. It survives high-intensity signals, up to 216 dB, that would damage most condenser microphones.

The unit has a frequency response of 0.05 Hz to 20 kHz, a 189-dB measurement range, 96-dB resolution, and 79.8-mV/kPa sensitivity. It is hermetically sealed and features an ICP output. (Contact Andrea Mohn for pricing and availability.)
