Operation Principle

of Digital acoustic emission sensor ZET 7140-E

The digital acoustic emission sensor consists of the BC 601 acoustic emission transducer and the ZET 7140-E measuring unit which digitizes the signal from the transducer and transmits the acoustic emission values in a digital form via CAN interface.

The transducer parameters are set in ZET 7140-E memory so there is no need for the user to set up the measuring channels. Another advantage of the digital sensors is that ready data are transmitted from the outputs no requiring any additional processing.

Test impact types

AC - alternating signal

FR: «Required frequency value»: «Frequency tolerance» – alternating signal frequency;

AM: «Required signal amplitude value»: «Signal amplitude tolerance» – alternating signal amplitude;

OF: «Generated signal bias»: «Generated signal bias tolerance» – generated signal bias;

TM: «Signal analysis time» – signal control time (minimal signal analysis time for transient processes or long-time tests)

Alternating signal with frequency: 0.5 ± 0.01 Hz, amplitude: 0.4 ± 0.002 V, bias: 0.1 ± 0.0001 V, minimal signal control time – 5 s.

DC - constant signal

LE: «Required signal level»: «Signal level tolerance» – generated signal level.

TM: «Signal analysis time» – control signal time (signal analysis minimal time for transient and long-time processes tests)


constant signal: 0.5 ± 0.001 V, minimal signal control time – 5 s.

ST1 - stepwise change

AM: «Minimal value»: «Maximum value» – change range.

TM: «Signal setting time» – time before signal control start

stepwise change: for 100..200 units, minimal signal control time – 5 s.

ST2 - stepwise change

MD: «Minimal change»: «Maximum change» – change amplitude.

TM: «Signal setting time» – time before signal control start

stepwise change: for 10..10.5 units in modulus, minimal signal control time – 6 s.

PPS - Pulse-per-second signal

SP: «Acceptable counts deviation» – amount of counts before or after start of a second.

Level change to be checked one time in a second.

PPS;SP:2 –
the change should take place in the beginning of a second, 2 counts.

Device type is selected from the dropdown list. In order to select a device, pick an element with left mouse key and choose a device to be checked from the list.

Use selector to set particular test. To set the test number click the number with left mouse key and set the required value by scroll. If the self-check is on, the selector will not be available until the user stops the project or the self-check is over. There is a key for start / stop of the process. The green key means that the diagnostics process is on, grey key stands for  for idle state.

Indicator is a timer showing the elapsing time of the current test. The countdown is started after beginning of any test. Test results are available in the log.
