PCB Awarded Patent for Universal Phantom Powered Preamplifier

December, 2019, Depew, NY – PCB Piezotronics, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MTS Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: MTSC), was awarded a patent for a universal phantom powered preamplifier. PCB engineers Mark Nowak and Drew Karkau are inventors of the patent for Model 426A14.

PCB’s patented phantom powered preamplifier (426A14) has a unique modular design that mates with any pre-polarized ½” or ¼” IEC 61094-4 compliant microphone cartridge.
