G.R.A.S. 40PL-1 Short CCP Free-field Array Microphone, High Pressure

Freq range: 50 to 20 kHz
Dyn range: 32 dB(A) to 142 dB
Sensitivity: 10 mV/Pa

Typical applications and use

  • Multi-channel measurements
  • Sound-field analyses
  • Sound-power measurements
  • Concurrent spatial and transient measurements


It has an integrated CCP preamplifier and is delivered with a built-in TEDS chip which enables it to be programmed as a complete unit. The G.R.A.S. 40PL-1 requires a constant current power supply, e.g. the G.R.A.S. 12AL CCP Supply, or any other CCP compatible power supply.

Close manufacturing tolerances together with the advantages of the TEDS chip provide the G.R.A.S. 40PL-1 with a high degree of interchangeability; a major advantage when used in multiples forming arrays and matrices.

The low cost of the G.R.A.S. 40PL-1 is a key consideration when setting up measurements requiring a multiplicity of concurrent transient and spatial data.

Calibrating the G.R.A.S. 40PL-1 with a G.R.A.S. pistonphone (G.R.A.S. 42AP is recommended) is as straightforward as calibrating any other G.R.A.S. 1/4-inch microphone.

All G.R.A.S. microphones are individually checked and calibrated before leaving the factory. An individual calibration chart is supplied with each microphone.
