The 46BD is a 1/4" CCP microphone set for pressure measurements. Its LEMO equivalent is G.R.A.S. 46BP
The set consists of the 1/4" pressure microphone 40BD and the 1/4" preamplifier 26CB with a Microdot coaxial connector.
This combination was chosen to save you time and give you the best possible properties and reliability in the microphone/preamplifier match. Your workflow is optimized and typical handling errors are minimized.
Not only have we made a set of the best possible combination of microphone and preamplifier, we have also included TEDS, the Transducer Electronic Data Sheet standard according to IEEE-1451.4. Multi-channel users appreciate having an intelligent transducer, like 46AF, that can supply properties, types, and calibration data directly to measurement platforms that support TEDS.
The signal wire in the CCP transducer is used for reading the TEDS information directly from the transducer.
46BD is individually factory-calibrated and delivered with a calibration chart stating its specific open-circuit sensitivity and pressure frequency response.
Typical applications and use
The 40BD is ideal for sound pressure measurements, as well as high frequency and high level pressure measurements. It is suitable for general purpose acoustic measurements in couplers and at boundaries.
The 46BD uses the Microdot coaxial connector, which requires an input module that supports this technology.
