Acoustic Emission Transducers

Product Code : GDSAE

The Acoustic Emission transducers enable micro-fractures occurring within a rock specimen during testing to be recorded and analysed. Analysis of rock micro fractures can give information as to the failure mechanisms of a sample under tests well as determining the onset of failure.

 The GDSAE system can be configured either as a simple Hit Counter type system or a full fracture location / velocity tomography system. The GDSAE system may be specified as a triggered type system or a continuous acquisition system.  The triggered system yields less but more simple data to process whereas, the continuous system never misses a beat.  The system can be configured to use both types of data acquisition.

Key features Benefits to the user
High speed data acquisition systems:  10MHz – 50MHz with bit counts or 12-16 Bits allow for high resolution measurement.
Varied systems range: Systems range from simple counter systems through to complete systems that can locate the origin of the event within the sample.
