What is IEPE (Integrated Electronics Piezo-Electric))/ICP®?
The abbreviation IEPE stands for Integrated Electronics Piezo-Electric. These piezoelectric sensors with built-in electronics have become the standard for industrial applications. A semiconductor circuit converts the high impedance signal of the piezosensor to a voltage signal with low impedance, which is more easily transmitted. Thanks to IEPE, the power supply and sensor signal are transmitted via one standard cable of any length without measurement errors due to cable movements. The IEPE principle is known under a number of other brand names such as ICP®, Piezotron®, CCLD, IsoTron® or DeltaTron®.
