Resonance can create challenges for measurement engineers. For recess-mounted pressure sensors, organ-pipe resonance amplifies the pressure signal by 20 dB or more. When measuring unsteady pressure, aerodynamically driven resonances associated with the sensor packaging can produce large gain and phase errors in the frequency range of interest. And the mechanical structures of PE, PR, and IEPE accelerometers have a well-known underdamped seismic resonance of the sensing mass. These issues can severely limit the usable bandwidth and cause post-processing headaches.
Precision Filters, working with Kulite Semiconductor Products, has created REZCOMP technology to address these problems. REZCOMP compensates frequency response in real time, using electrical filtering to correct for aerodynamically driven resonances related to sensor packaging/mounting and preventing signal distortion caused by sensor resonances. REZCOMP extends the sensor’s usable, flat amplitude bandwidth while correcting the phase response, maintaining constant time delay over the extended bandwidth. REZCOMP technology typically extends the usable sensor bandwidth by 200% to 300%—or even more.
