Recent research activities in dynamic pressure metrology have been mainly focusing on the development of primary standards like the shock tube or drop-weight apparatus to establish traceability to SI. However, these calibration facilities require a high level of expertise leading to elaborate and time-consuming calibrations. The development of secondary calibrators, based on the reference sensor principle, offering efficient and cost-effective calibrations is essential to meet the needs for industry and to disseminate the dynamic pressure quantity to a wide end-user community. This paper reports a novel secondary calibrator for dynamic pressure measurements up to 300 bar with an expanded uncertainty of about 3.0 %. A heating option enable calibrations at elevated temperatures up to 200 °C making it an ideal solution for convenient calibrations of dynamic pressure transducers used for measurement in internal combustion engine applications.
