Depew, NY - PCB Piezotronics, Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of microphones, vibration, force, torque, load, strain, and pressure sensors, as well as the pioneer of ICP® technology is pleased to announced an agreement to supply The Discovery Channel's popular science series MYTHBUSTERS with test sensors for various episodes. The show hosts, special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, use elements of the scientific method to test the validity of rumors, myths, movie scenes, internet videos and news stories. PCB Piezotronics has provided sensors to the Discovery Channel's MYTHBUSTER show since 2005.
Episodes featuring PCB® sensors include "Dumpster Diving" where a crash test dummy is instrumented with PCB model 356A02 triaxial ICP® piezoelectric accelerometers to measure impact shock levels induced by a "typical" four story jump into a dumpster filled with trash, to determine the probability for survival and test the myth commonly seen in getaway scenes of action movies where the action hero hops out after the fall and escapes from the villain. More recently these PCB® accelerometers made an appearance in the "Bubble Pack Plunge" episode where Adam and Jamie test the internet video myth that you can jump from a height of thirty-five feet wrapped in bubble packaging and survive.
PCB® Series 102 pressure sensors have appeared in the "Toilet Bomb" and "Valkyrie Boom" episodes both based on scenes from popular movies. The Series 137/138 blast probes assisted in "Depth Charge Disaster" To view these and all the MYTHBUSTERS episodes go to www.discovery.com/mythbusters
